Helping make regenerative medicine a reality

Thu May 18, 2017
Regenerative medicine is emerging science with the potential to replace damaged tissues/organs and tackle diseases (e.g., cancer, diabetes) via cellular therapies. UAlberta is helping making regenerative medicine a reality via our research expertise and advanced research facilities like the Alberta Cell Therapy Manufacturing (ACTM)— the first facility of its kind in Western Canada and 1 of only 5 in Canada. ACTM contains the required equipment and controlled conditions to enable cellular therapy research and development. It’s also a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) facility—a quality assurance system required for moving new therapies and medicines to patients, because GMP ensures therapies/medicines are made and controlled consistently.
