CCRM’s mission is to generate sustainable health and economic benefits through global collaboration in regenerative medicine, and cell and gene therapy.
Regenerative medicine, which aims to harness the power of stem cells, biomaterials and molecules to repair, regenerate or replace diseased cells, tissues and organs, has the promise to treat, manage and perhaps cure some of the most devastating and costly diseases in the world today.
Many new and potentially life-changing regenerative medicine-based treatments never reach patients because they are not successfully moved from the laboratory to a stage where they can be used in medicine. In order to fulfill regenerative medicine’s promise to treat the many diseases affecting our population, a world-renowned group of stem cell scientists and bioengineers have come together to form CCRM.
To be the preferred global destination for the best people, technologies, clinical trials, companies and investments in regenerative medicine. To be the premier global enabler of clinically tested, revolutionary new medical therapies and foundational technologies.
CCRM is taking regenerative medicine from bench to bedside by treating and potentially curing some of the most devastating and costly diseases in the world today.
CCRM represents a tremendous opportunity for Canadians to lead regenerative medicine commercialization, an emerging industry with annual growth projected at 30 per cent, leading to new jobs and economic growth.
CCRM’s scientific members are internationally recognized regenerative medicine leaders who have a long and distinguished history of groundbreaking discoveries and scientific excellence. This expertise dates back to the seminal discoveries of Drs. James Till and Ernest McCulloch, who proved the existence of stem cells in the early 1960s.
