SITTING CASUALLY ON LAB STOOLS, THESE 2 SNOW DAPPLED GENTS ARE MEDICAL REVOLUTIONARIES

TORONTO is the city where stem cell science was born, thanks to Dr. James Till (on the right) and Dr. Ernest McCulloch (1926-2011).

<Dr. JAMES TILL>

<Dr. ERNEST McCULLOCH>

Their research laid the foundation for what could be the most promising and ethically controversial area of international medicine today.  The sculptures, created by RUTH ABERNATHY, were installed in 2016 at the MaRs Complex on College Street.

Dr. Christopher Paige, Vice-President, Research at University Health Network – “Their work changed the course of cancer research and lit the way to what we now call regenerative medicine – the use of stem cells for bone marrow transplants and many other types of disease research.”

An interview with both doctors is on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7N-fUKjT-s
