Upcoming Events

We will be hosting two events on regenerative medicine, living therapies and barriers that exist in ACB communities. These in-person events in Ottawa (March 16) and Hamilton (March 26) aim to:

  • define state of the art regenerative medicine approaches;
  • discuss equity concerns in the field of regenerative medicine;
  • outline key messages from regenerative medicine communities to ACB communities;
  • unpack concepts of racism and education pertinent to the regenerative medicine community.
