U of T engineers are at the forefront of addressing the world’s most important challenges, and many of these are related to human health. In collaboration with clinicians, our professors and students apply innovative thinking, creativity and problem-solving to detect and treat disease, repair damaged tissues and improve the delivery of health care.
Our faculty members lead multidisciplinary research and educational initiatives focused on health, including:
Medicine by Design, which focuses on transformative research in the design and manufacture of cells, tissues and organs for regenerative medicine;
I hope you enjoy reading more about the synergy between engineering and medicine in this issue of The Engineering Newsletter. Together, we can greatly improve the lives of not only our neighbours, but also people around the world. I encourage you to share related stories with our Engineering Strategic Communications team so we may feature these achievements in upcoming publications.
