The Science, Facts and a Theist and Atheist Perspective
With Special Guests Dr. Kelly McNagny and Dr. Fabio Rossi, Co-Directors, Biomedical Research Centre, UBC. Theological response provided by Jonathan Chan, B.Econ, GDBA, M.Div
Stem cell research is one of the most promising fields in medical science today. It holds the potential to regenerate human tissues and cure life-threatening conditions like cancer, Parkinson’s, and heart disease. This research has also been hotly debated in the political and theological arenas as it challenges science, social morays and religious convictions percolating new ethical questions.
Join us with special guests Drs. Kelly McNagny and Fabio Rossi as they discuss the fascinating field of stem cells and tissue regeneration. Learn more about the complexities of stem cell therapies and discover the world-class research taking place at UBC, one of Canada’s foremost research universities. Pat O’Brien of Centre for Inquiry Canada and Jonathan Chan, founder and CEO of Company of Disciples will also provide an atheist and theological response to Drs. McNagny and Rossi and will be our moderators during open question and answer period.
