State of the art equipment and facilities enable stellar research.

The Zandstra lab has two facilities. The primary facility is located in the state-of-the-art School of Biomedical Engineering at the University of British Columbia. Our partner facility is located in the Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research at the University of Toronto (St George campus). Our facilities focus on stem cell biology and bioengineering. Each lab is run as an open concept, interdisciplinary, and shared resource facility.
