Research

The University of Toronto Temerty Faculty of Medicine and our nine fully affiliated hospitals bring together one of the largest communities of health researchers in the world. More than 1,600 principal investigators in 26 academic departments conducted $821 million in research last year. Together, we are leading research innovation to do what can't be done, and improving the health of people and populations around the globe.

Human pluripotent stem cells have the potential to transform themselves into all the different kinds of cells of the body, including the cells of the pancreas that produce insulin. Harnessing this potential through cell transplants could revolutionize diabetes treatment. The new insulin source would help patients manage their blood sugar levels, potentially eliminating the need for insulin injections by syringe or pump.
