"We see significant appetite in the market for viable discovery platforms for peptide based therapeutics. It is important that Dr. Yudin receives appropriate support at this early stage to maximize the potential of this work," commented Dr. Rafi Hofstein, President and CEO, MaRS Innovation. "At MaRS Innovation, we work with many of the Province's leading researchers to convert great science into commercial opportunities."

U of T's Innovations and Partnerships Office (IPO) is working in collaboration with MI and Dr. Yudin to commercialize his novel platform technology.

"The University of Toronto is grateful to the Ontario Genomics Institute for this investment in our research," said Dr. Peter Lewis, Associate Vice President, Research at U of T and Acting Assistant Vice President, IPO. "The PBDF award will be vital in helping U of T and MaRS Innovation to bring Dr. Yudin's innovation to the marketplace. Just as importantly, OGI's support will assist greatly in enabling Dr. Yudin's work to make a strong and positive impact on global society."
