University of Toronto Awarded $2.5 Million Funds For COVID19 Research

University of Toronto and its partner hospitals have been awarded a combined total of nearly $2.5 million to support infrastructure and equipment needs for two projects, each aimed at better understanding and tackling COVID-19.

The funding is being awarded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s (CFI) Exceptional Opportunities Fund in an effort to help educational institutions, research organizations and hospitals meet urgent equipment needs for research projects related to the pandemic.

These research projects include –

  1. Creation of a bank for biological samples
  2.  Program to better understand the biology of SARS-CoV-2

“Canadian researchers and scientists are helping to protect our health and safety and are key to finding our way out of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Navdeep Bains, Canada’s minister of innovation, science and industry, in a statement.

“With this funding through the Exceptional Opportunities Fund, the Government of Canada is ensuring these talented Canadians have the equipment and tools to support them in their very important work.”
