Research network based at University of Toronto gets $5 million boost to speed up cancer detection
Date:9/24/2009

sor Paul Young, U of T's vice-president (research). "These grants fund large-scale multi-disciplinary projects that have the potential to bring great benefit to society in the coming years, and this is exactly the kind of work that Professor Walker is leading. We will look to him and others like him who are working closely with collaborators in academia and industry for innovations that will improve the nation's economy and the quality of life of its citizens."

The network, which will receive NSERC funding of $1 million per year for five years, is unique in that it brings together experts from a wide range of disciplines and skill sets. U of T researchers in the Departments of Chemistry, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Physics and the Faculty of Medicine are involved, as well as scientists from the Universities of Ottawa, Victoria, Western Ontario and Windsor. The team also includes scientists from the cole Polytechnique de Montral and Toronto's Mt. Sinai and Princess Margaret Hospitals as well as industrial partners.

"We are extremely grateful to NSERC for its continued investment in excellence and for its support of U of T research," says University of Toronto president David Naylor. "The BiopSys network represents a unique partnership between universities, industry and government that will lead to revolutionary improvements in cancer diagnosis. The network brings together some of the best minds from a wide range of disciplines, including biochemistry, engineering and physics. Through its industrial partners, BiopSys will be able to transfer that knowledge into practice quickly, developing equipment of significant value to Canadians."
