Welcome to the Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research.
The Donnelly Centre is an interdisciplinary research institute at the University of Toronto with the mandate to create a research environment that encourages integration of biology, computer science, engineering and chemistry, and that spans leading areas of biomedical research. It is now clear that continued progress in medicine and health research is dependent upon the integration of technology, expertise and creative thought from diverse disciplines. The open concept laboratories in the Donnelly Centre are designed to encourage constant interactions between scientists, their colleagues and trainees. I encourage you to visit the individual lab websites of our principal investigators to see how the Donnelly Centre is transforming the study of biology and biomedical research.
l would like to thank Dr. Terrence Donnelly, whose generous gift helped build the Donnelly Centre with guidance from research visionaries, Dr. Cecil Yip and Dr. James Friesen.
