(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.
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.
