Meeting peers from around the world
Summer by Design attracts participants from around the world. Along with learning from their peers’ unique global perspectives, participants built professional networks that could become future scientific or entrepreneurial collaborations.
Participants came from a range of research areas including stem cell biology, biomedical engineering, RNA technology, computational biology and genomics.
In addition to local trainees from U of T and its affiliated hospitals, international trainees from institutions including Cornell University, University of York (U.K.), Technical University of Munich and Lund University joined the program.
A portion of the participants were also from Canadian institutions outside of Toronto including University of British Columbia, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and Western University.
