Larry Morran at Sandwalk points out that there is a hotbed of biomedical research at the University of Toronto, part of a substantial research base in Ontario.
The area around my building contains one of the densest populations of researchers in the world. The problem is that hardly anyone knows about it. Toronto isn’t on everyone’s radar in spite of the fact that there’s a lot of high quality work being done.
Larry points out that Nature magazine has an article about called “Toronto Rising.” There’s a lot of research going on here but we’re not communicating about it to the rest of the world.
The MaRS Centre is a relatively new research facility in an older building at University & College.
