Running to support our research

On April 24 2016 our team “Stem Cells for Liver Disease” took part in the Scotiabank charity run “21 km de Montréal” to raise awareness on pediatric liver diseases and the need to support research. In a beautiful, weather all lab members ran (ok, mostly walked!) the 5 km race. Alexandra, Giulia and Valerio teamed up with us. We won’t share our race times… but thanks to the support of friends and families we raised about $3500, which will be used to buy research equipment (we’ll post a picture).

Check the photos of the race:
