Fathers of Stem Cell Research
The Toronto Star reports that James Till and Ernest McCulloch were named to the Order of Ontario.
Till and McCulloch, Professors in the Department of Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto, discovered stem cells in the early 1960's. They are members of the Royal Academy of Sciences, members of the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame, and winners of the Lasker Prize and the Gairdner Award.
When will they get their well-deserved Nobel Prize?
