The Globe and Mail’s Regenerative Medicine webcast, presented by Bayer.

Stem cells hold the potential to create new and innovative treatments and therapies for illnesses such as Parkinson’s, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Researchers in Canada are working on stem cell advances to test new therapies, and to grow and repair tissues, organs and damaged cells, paving the way for a future of regenerative medicine and disease prevention. This webcast will cover what these advances mean for health care, along with risks, opportunities and considerations to take into account.
