Centre aims to become stem cell research leader

Published: April 25, 2007

160_superbug_050727Canadian businessman Rob McEwen believes that Canada can be at the forefront of medical research with an innovative approach to curing disease. By donating part of his fortune, he is helping to fund research in the new field of regenerative medicine.

The McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine in Toronto envisions a day when the standard treatment for disease is not based on invasive procedures or powerful medications, but on utilizing the body’s own stems cells to have patients literally heal themselves.

Following an original gift of $10 million in 2003, Rob and his wife Cheryl recently donated a second $10 million to support research at the Centre — the largest cumulative gift in stem cell research in Canada. The McEwen centre opened last fall, attracting worldwide attention on Canada’s initiatives in stem cell research.
