Canada <Cooperation with Each Country>

1) Research Area – "Epigenetics of Stem Cells"

JST-CIHR Joint Research Project "The Epigenetics of Stem Cells" is created to promote and expand joint researches on ways to lead to new innovative technologies that could address major challenges in the basic understanding of stem cell activity and function, as well as remove barriers to effective translation of stem cell research for health benefits.

2) Funding Agency of Canada Side

Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)
