Lunenfeld researcher first in Canada to discover new clue in the development of mania and bipolar disorder

(Toronto, ON) Twenty-five years ago, a group of committed scientific visionaries had a dream. They envisioned a leading edge medical research facility, populated with the best, the brightest, and the most curious minds in the scientific world. In the last quarter century, the group of world leading researchers, who have gathered at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute, have made some of the most important discoveries in their fields and continue to make inroads into the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, psychiatric disorders, kidney disease, women’s and infants’ health, inflammatory bowel disease, and spinal cord injury. 

Today, with pride and awe, we celebrate the growing list of extraordinary medical achievements and honour the founders and builders of the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute at Mount Sinai Hospital. Hosted by a CBC personality, this unique evening on February 2 will give you the opportunity to interact with some of the world’s most accomplished researchers at a dinner celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Institute.
While enjoying a gourmet meal, you will be seated with one of our renowned researchers as they discuss their field of study and answer questions. The evening will culminate in a stimulating “lightning round” — a series of brief presentations from several researchers.
This event will provide an exclusive occasion to learn about the most recent advances in medical science from those whose discoveries have changed the way we understand complex human illness and improve our ability to live healthy lives.

You will also experience the Art of Science — where microscopy images have been transformed into stunning works of art. We are pleased to showcase the expertise and research currently happening at the Institute. Our labs have isolated cellular structures and protein complexes that, when magnified, become artistic imagery perfect to hang on a wall. There will be an auction to bid on and take home one of these striking pieces.   

Thank you for your interest in being part of this milestone with us, and for supporting the Bright Minds and Big Hearts that provide The Best Medicine.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the evening, please contact Leah Parolin at lparolin@mtsinai.on.ca or call 416.586.8203, ext. 3192.
