An international collaboration involving Canada and California, with a focus on cancer stem cells, can be expected to raise research in this field to a much higher level." said Dr. Jim Till, the President of the CSCC. "International coordination and collaboration should ensure that Canadian funds will be used to support Canadian research of the very highest quality."
