Organizer

Ontario Institute for Regenerative Medicine

Building on more than 50 years of world-leading research in stem cells and regenerative medicine, the Ontario Institute for Regenerative Medicine (OIRM) was launched in 2014 with a vision to revolutionize the treatment of degenerative diseases and make Ontario a global leader in the development of stem cell-based products and therapies. More than 170 research programs at universities and institutions across the province are involved with OIRM, with additional contributions from key clinical and health charity partners and from OIRM’s commercialization partner, the Centre for the Commercialization for Regenerative Medicine (CCRM). OIRM is based in Toronto and was realized with investment from Ontario’s Ministry of Research and Innovation. www.oirm.ca
