November 17, 2006

On Wednesday, the Sprott Centre for Stem Cell Research officially opened at the Ottawa Health Research Institute. Vizma and Eric Sprott donated $7 million toward the construction of the 30,000 square foot facility, in the hope "that scientists at this Centre could one day discover a cure for some of the many diseases that are afflicting people around the world." The $24 million centre will eventually house more than 120 researchers and staff. Media release
