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. With a 2018 theme of “Problem Solving with our Partners,” OIRM’s goal is to enable more Ontario research to bridge the gap between the lab and the clinic.

 

The Symposium features presentations from some of Canada’s leading experts on regenerative medicine, including representatives from the five Disease Teams currently funded by OIRM. In addition, the discovery science presentations will highlight some of Ontario’s most innovative new ideas.


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

"Endogenesis and Exogenesis in Heart Regeneration"

 

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.
