This past weekend was an extraordinary one for Canada. On Saturday people across the country gathered together to say thank you and goodbye to Canada's band, The Tragically Hip. On Sunday, we watched proudly as our athletes gathered together in Rio to close out an extraordinary Summer Olympic games. Toronto's own Penny Oleksiak carried the flag and Aaron Brown, whose father Ian Brown is an
ophthalmology technician at Toronto Western, celebrated his bronze medal in the 4x100 relay. Seeing hometown heroes and cheering on Aaron at this year’s Summer Olympics has been extraordinary – especially being able to watch Team Canada on CBC!
Facebook Live with Dr. Gaetan Tardif
Luckily the games are not over – on September 7th a new field of athletes will take the stage for the 2016 Summer Paralympic Games. On Wednesday, August 24th join us on
UHN’s Facebook page at noon for a
live broadcast leading up to the Rio Paralympics 2016 starring Dr. Gaetan Tardif, Medical Program Director at Toronto Rehab and President of the Canadian Paralympic Committee, and Adam Lancia, a Canadian Paralympic athlete. They’ll be answering questions about the Parasport movement, the powerful role rehabilitation can play in sport, and what we can expect from the Games. You can ask your questions live during the broadcast or email them to
Minister Moridi announces funding for researchers at UHN
This morning we welcomed Minister of Research, Innovation and Science, Hon. Reza Moridi to UHN. While at Princess Margaret, the Minister announced that the province is investing $51 million to support research across Ontario. A number of projects led by UHN researchers have already received funding, including four through the Early Researcher Awards, eight through the Ontario Research Fund – Research Infrastructure program and one genomics project through the Ontario Research Fund – Large Scale Applied Research Project. When we hosted the Research Town Halls this past spring many of you raised the issue of funding, specifically for young researchers. Another key concern was the gap in funding for research infrastructure, especially as advances in technology emerge. We will continue to work with our colleagues in CAHO to demonstrate the value of research to the provincial government, something that Minister Moridi is keenly aware of in his portfolio. Research excellence is an integral part of UHN and essential to our role in driving societal impact through discovery, invention and innovation. Supporting our researchers is critical to achieve that excellence. Congratulations to the projects that were selected – you can learn more about them
