Our Faculty of Medicine is an institution brimming with possibilities and landmark achievements. Whenever I meet U of T Medicine supporters, I’m always impressed and encouraged by how excited they are about the role they play in our boundless opportunities.

The Rehabilitation Sciences Sector, for example, is making great strides in expanding research to help those thousands of Canadians who will experience brain injury every year. This opportunity is made possible by a landmark $1.5 million gift from March of Dimes Canada. Our work in neuroscience will accelerate the development of new treatments for neurodegenerative diseases as a result of a $1 million gift establishing an international collaboration between the renowned Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute in California, and our Tanz Centre for Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases. Meanwhile, our understanding of the nutrition-related health issues facing children and their families in Canada and around the world will improve because of a $5 million gift to the Centre for Child Nutrition, Health and Development.

This is truly an exciting chapter for our Faculty. I look forward to working alongside our Dean, Dr. Trevor Young, and with all of you to expand on our opportunities. This continued support will help U of T Medicine achieve new levels of excellence in our research and education programs.
