Update on the Temerty Building

This fall, we began the process to select an architect for the new James and Louise Temerty Building at the University of Toronto. This state-of-the-art facility will replace the west wing of the Medical Sciences Building, and will be a spectacular new home for education and research at the Temerty Faculty of Medicine. Early in 2023, we will invite a shortlist to participate in the request-for-proposal process, then a Committee will select the teams that will design and construct our building. Groundbreaking is still some time away — likely 2025 — but these recent developments are key and exciting milestones for the project, one of the largest redevelopments of physical space our Faculty has ever undertaken. 

Giving Back

The impact of donor support begins by enhancing the work of our clinicians, researchers and trainees but then resonates throughout the health-care system and ultimately serves to improve human health.
