We are pleased to announce the launch of our new website and logo.


In the 10 years since its establishment, the SCC-RI has changed a lot. Having grown in both size and scope, we’re now home to 8 distinct research laboratories all joined by a shared focus on our three health research programs and associated SCC-RI developed platform technologies.

Approaching this milestone anniversary, we knew it was time to develop a visual identity that could reflect this growth, and showcase where we plan to go in the next 10 years and beyond.

The cornerstones of this new visual identity are our new, more streamlined website and logo.

 "Our logo reflects our sustained commitment to having a translational impact and our unique understanding of the difficulties of translational science. The logo, an abstract image of a hand, represents the multiple hands that are involved in our work and goal - the hand of researcher, health care provider, and finally, the hand of the patient, for whom our outcomes are ultimately the most important. The gradient of colours on the fingers represents the gradated nature of translational science and symbolizes the maturation of ideas and the evolution of our work toward patient testing.”  – Dr. Mick Bhatia

We are thrilled to share this new look with all of you. We invite you to explore this new website and direct any questions to us through the form found on the Engage page.
