This Initiative stems out of a Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF) application on regenerative medicine lead by Dr. Fabio Rossi, UBC.

In 2017, UBC established a Research Excellence Fund and recognized regenerative medicine as nascent Cluster of Excellence. This Cluster has generated a network of members in the BC academic community and positioned this group to capitalize on larger opportunities and initiatives.

Simon Fraser University, the University of Victoria and the University of British Columbia Okanagan have all come on board as strong supporters of the regenerative medicine cluster initiative in BC!
