Researchers at the University of Toronto have developed an alternative theory to explain how nanoparticles enter and exit the tumours they are meant to treat. This new principle debunks a leading theory in cancer nanomedicine that has guided research for nearly four decades.
A team of U of T Engineering researchers, led by Professor Omar F. Khan (BME), has partnered with biotechnology company Moderna to develop next-generation RNA platform technologies.
Microscopes are some of the most powerful tools in cell biology — but what if the cell component that needs to be imaged is smaller than the wavelengths of visible light? A new study from Professor Chris Yip (ChemE, BME) proposes a solution, one that could help advance research into cancer and other diseases.
A mixed filling dumpling with Myo Palate's cultivated pork and store-bought vegetable ingredients. The company has partnered with U of T Engineering professor Michael Garton (BME) on a project to further advance their technology.
May 25, 2022 | Omar F. Khan was first inspired to be an engineer by his father's workplace accident. Now, his lab is studying nanomaterials & pushing the boundaries of regenerative medicine.
April 7, 2022 | Dr. Omar Khan's lab is creating new nanotechnologies to control and deliver nucleic acids, will lead a team that plans on working with Moderna to develop next-generation vaccine platforms.
December 15, 2021 | Hai-Ling Margaret Cheng was one of the UofT researchers receiving the New Frontiers in Research Fund.
September 9, 2021 | In a study published this week in Nature Communications, research from Professor Aaron Wheeler has introduced reconfigurable multi-component micromachines driven by optoelectronic tweezers.
June 11, 2021 | Researchers at the University of Toronto (Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Department of Chemistry, Donnelly Centre for Biomolecular Research) in collaboration with Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Public Health Ontario, and Mt. Sinai Hospital have engineered a diagnostic test with a smartphone reader to surveil and track COVID-19 patients.
November 11, 2020 | Scientists can now select individual cells from a population that grows on the surface of a laboratory dish and study their molecular contents. Developed by U of T researchers, the new tool will enable a deeper study of stem cells and other rare cell types for therapy development.
