Medicine by Design Award Process
Medicine by Design awards funding to outstanding regenerative medicine projects at the University of Toronto and its affiliated hospitals through a strategic and rigorous peer-reviewed process that recognizes excellence and innovation and advances collaboration throughout our community. Funded projects can range from early-stage research to the development of products and technologies that are ready for clinical trials, creating a robust pipeline of research that drives Toronto’s burgeoning regenerative medicine sector.
Competitions involve external reviewers from a range of relevant disciplines. Our Scientific Advisory Board, made up of international leaders in regenerative medicine, provides advice and input on our scientific and translational projects. Our Executive Committee, composed of deans and vice-presidents of research from participating institutions, approves funding models, reviews award decisions and provides strategic guidance and support.
