Reducing the impact of heart failure on an aging population.

More than 100,000 people in Canada are diagnosed with heart failure each year. There is no cure, but there is hope on the horizon. Heart & Stroke researcher Dr. Ren-Ke Li has shown that the body’s own stem cells could improve recovery after a heart attack and regenerate damaged heart tissue—preventing heart failure.

With continued funding from Heart & Stroke donors, Dr. Li’s work has led to the development of a ground-breaking technique to “rejuvenate” the body’s stem cells.
