Medicine by Design’s 5th Annual Symposium will bring together principal investigators and trainees from across the University of Toronto and its affiliated hospitals, members of our Scientific Advisory Board, representatives from our ecosystem partners across industry, the investment community, government and the not-for-profit sector, and international collaborators to advance our research toward impact.

The theme of this year’s virtual symposium is Better Science through Convergence. Through talks by invited speakers from across North America and Medicine by Design principal investigators, we will highlight how collaboration and convergence across research disciplines are accelerating regenerative medicine discoveries and translation. We will also hold a virtual poster session featuring the research of select trainees working on Medicine by Design-funded projects.
