McMaster to open Canada's first human embryonic stem cell library

June 28, 2007

McMaster will be the home of Canada’s first human embryonic stem cell library, thanks to a $50 million donation from Hamilton businessman David Braley.  The donation will be used to finance three efforts: a family health centre that Braley hopes will be located in Hamilton’s downtown area, a $25 million endowment to fund scientists and health professionals pursuing new initiatives, and $15 million to establish the embryonic stem cell library. McMaster Daily News
