Regenerative Medicine Cluster Initiative in BC

The Regenerative Medicine Cluster Initiative

Emerging Canadian-led clinical trials (including a first-in-the-world clinical trial of pluripotent stem cell derived insulin-secreting progenitors contained within a vascularized device) are happening in Vancouver right now! These clinical trials have positioned British Columbia at the forefront of RM research.

We have launched this initiative to unite members of this research community and its stakeholders to capitalize on this timely and unique opportunity. Our goal is to position Regenerative Medicine as an exemplar life science sector-specific cluster that Canada can lead in, and that can prototype government recommendations for innovative cluster growth (i.e., training, scaling, local procurement, etc).
