Making strides toward a cure for diabetes

David Hess, PhD, has channelled a personal childhood experience into a lifetime of research focused on a stem-cell therapy that would completely eliminate the need for diabetes patients to monitor their glucose levels and take daily insulin shots.

Imaging the long-term effects of COVID-19

Sophisticated technology and key collaborations have propelled important research forward that seeks to answer questions about the devastating impact of the disease on human health.

Banking on research

The new Brain BioBank at Robarts Research Institute is home to a program that conducts detailed cognitive and behavioural testing on patients with a neurodegenerative disease and allows them to donate their brain tissue to research after death.
