Study Stem Cell Science and Regenerative Medicine


Stem cells are the future of medicine, and Canada is on the cutting edge of the field.

With over 279 research groups and $305 million in funding, Canada is a world leader in stem cell research and treatment.Footnote * When you study stem cells in one of Canada’s graduate schools, you join an innovative group of scientists that are re-imagining the way we use medicine.

Stem cells are the building blocks of the human body. Unlike other cells, stems cells can adapt and transform into any cell type. Once stem cells are differentiated, they can reproduce to fill specific needs in the body.

When cells in the human body are damaged by disease, stem cells can be used as a repair system. Many people suffering from heart, kidney, and liver disease face long wait times to receive the organ donations they need to survive. Experts believe that stem cell treatment is the solution to curing these diseases, saving millions of lives in the process.

By studying in Canada, you will learn not only the skills needed to work in a stem cell lab, but also how to apply your research directly to patients.
