I look forward to the advances that will be made under his leadership.

The remainder of the Munk gift will support our Innovation Fund, allowing us the opportunity to pioneer new treatments for our patients. I congratulate the staff of the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre for their ongoing commitment and care to their work, which has ensured that we are the best cardiac centre in the world.
The generous gift from Peter and Melanie marks the launch a new Campaign to raise $100 million over the next two years to support the programs at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre.
