New Models for Eye Disease

A research team at UHN's Donald K. Johnson Eye Institute in collaboration with the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto (U of T) has discovered that transplanted retinal cells can share essential materials with host cells in the lab, offering a promising avenue for delivering therapies directly to damaged areas of the eye.

Canadian Hub for Health Intelligence and Innovation in Infectious Diseases awarded $72 million to strengthen talent development and health intelligence

One of the CBRF-funded programs is the Biomanufacturing Hub Network, an immersive talent development program based at the University of Toronto led by U of T University Professor Molly Shoichet (ChemE, BME) along with Darius Rackus, an assistant professor of chemistry and biology at Toronto Metropolitan University, and Gilbert Walker, a professor of chemistry at U of T.

New study reveals insights into extracellular matrix’s influence on regeneration

A study published in the Journal of Cell Science, led by Professor Penney Gilbert (BME) and Jo Nguyen at the University of Toronto, shed light on the impact of culture substrate stiffness and extracellular matrix (ECM) ligands on the contractility, proliferation, and various cellular processes of human myoblasts. The study aims to understand how these factors influence the regenerative activities of muscle stem cells and their progeny, with implications for aging and disease. 

Four Biomedical Engineering Faculty Members Secure CIHR Funding for Research Projects

Four esteemed faculty members from the Institute Biomedical Engineering (BME) at the University of Toronto have successfully secured funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) through the Project Grant Program’s fall 2023 funding cycle. The CIHR funding will support their cutting-edge research projects aimed at advancing health-related knowledge and outcomes.
