Stem Cell and Cancer Research Institute

McMaster’s Stem Cell and Cancer Research Institute is a collaborative group of laboratories performing world class science with a focus on translating discoveries into clinical applications.

Effective healthcare is dependent on the knowledge generated by scientific research. At the SCC-RI, we are motivated to improve healthcare options for patients who currently have few or none. To realize this, we are working with human cells throughout the scientific process in our unique, state-of-the-art facilities.

Our work is guided by the following health programs and technological platforms:
