Event Details

OIRM's Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Symposium is an annual one-day event that brings together scientists, clinicians, trainees, industry, health charities, and government to share advances and solve problems towards enabling more Ontario research to bridge the gap between the lab and the clinic. Emphasis will be placed on OIRM's Disease Teams and discovery science that demonstrates Ontario's translational capacity in regenerative medicine. This year's theme is "Problem Solving with our Partners". 

Keynote speaker: Charles Murry, MD, PhD, University of Washington

Charles Murry photoDr. Charles (Chuck) Murry’s research focuses on stem cell biology, emphasizing differentiation of the human cardiovascular system and using these cells to study diseases and to regenerate damaged tissues.  His group is a world leader in heart regeneration and is working toward a clinical trial using cardiomyocyte therapy. Murry is Director of the UW Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, director of the UW Medicine Heart Regeneration Program, and co-directs the UW Center for Cardiovascular Biology.  He has received numerous awards for teaching and scientific achievement.
