Want to find out about what’s happening in research in Toronto? The University of Toronto’s Experience Research site, which links the research communities of their three campuses, has recently undergone a fantastic redesign.

Along with this redesign comes volumes of information about U of T’s diverse research endeavors, including environment, health, science & technology and business.

The website quotes Professor R. Paul Young, Vice-President, Research, about the great strides the University of Toronto’s research community is making:

“The discovery of insulin. ‘The medium is the message.’ 10 Nobel Prizes. The University of Toronto has a rich research history. Today, our research endeavour is a formidable force, spanning three campuses and ten partner hospitals. Thousands of faculty members and students are at work tackling society’s pressing problems.”?

What I like most about the site is that it makes it fun to read about the research being conducted at U of T. For example, read about physicist Dick Peltier’s powerful models that show what has happened to our climate over the past 600 million years — and, based on that information, what is likely to happen far into the future if we don’t change our environmentally-damaging ways.

You’ll also find sections for researchers interested in the commercialization process, as well as information about how their research is funded and a publications section filled with annual reports and links to the magazines published by the university.
