Medicine by Design’s Pivotal Experiment Fund invests $1 million in four research teams to bridge the “valley of death” funding gap

Funding gives cutting-edge regenerative medicine concepts impacting heart disease, lung transplantation, degenerative brain disease and end-stage liver disease a pathway to clinical translation.

New research shows diabetes drug could provide brain protection to children who get radiation for brain tumours

Thanks to funding from Medicine by Design, a University of Toronto scientist and her team are closer to finding a way to protect the brain from damage for children who must be treated with cranial radiation.

Pivotal Experiment Fund to accelerate Medicine by Design-funded research toward impact

Medicine by Design's $4-million Pivotal Experiment Fund aims to bridge one of the critical gaps in the “valley of death” between a research discovery and a translatable therapy.

Medicine by Design-funded researchers develop a new tool for scooping contents of individual cells from their local environment

Scientists can now select individual cells from their local environment & study their molecular contents. The new tool will enable a deeper study of stem cells and other rare cell types for diagnostics & therapy.
