Regenerative healthcare
What if we could redefine health?

Every day, scientists are gaining an increased understanding of matter, including its replication and repair. This invaluable knowledge is contributing to advances in health sciences that will not only extend longevity, but will improve the quality of life for years to come.

The convergence of nanotechnology and modern medicine presents infinite new possibilities for humankind and offers hope for future generations.

Health is being redefined. It is shifting from reductive and reactionary practices to proactive and visionary methods that hold great potential for Albertans and the world at large. Alberta’s Ingenuity Lab is at the epicenter of this transformation.
