The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College Signs on Official Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Toronto

The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College has signed an official Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Toronto, through the faculty of Medicine, Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, and the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education to explore education and research collaborations. The Memorandum, a first between the two institutions, will provide opportunities to foster cooperative relationships in areas of research and education. This cooperation could be realized in such areas as research and joint applications for funding; joint educational courses; graduate and undergraduate student mobility; exchange of faculty and participation in, and co-hosting of lectures, meetings, seminars, symposia and conferences. The agreement between CMCC and the three U of T faculties is an important step forward in advancing research initiatives. Instrumental in bringing this agreement to fruition is Dr. Silvano Mior, CMCC research scientist and Senior Advisor to the President. Mior spearheaded this important partnership as well as many other such initiatives that continue to build models of collaboration between academic institutions and between chiropractors and physicians in the community primary health care setting.

Agilent Technologies to Collaborate with University of Toronto on Metabolomics Mrm Library-Software Solution

Agilent Technologies Inc. announced a collaboration with scientists at the University of Toronto's Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research to produce a comprehensive metabolomics multiple-reaction monitoring (MRM) library and methodology, using Agilent's Infinity 1290 UHPLC and 6460 triple quadrupole mass spectrometry system. The library, coupled with Agilent's MassHunter software, will provide scientists with a robust LC/MS solution to accelerate the quantification of hundreds of metabolically important compounds for cell biology and disease research. When completed, this new metabolomics MRM library will be added to Agilent's existing collection of MRM libraries, which address a variety of applications including pesticides, veterinary drugs, forensics and toxicology.

Janssen Inc. Signs Agreement with University of Toronto's Centre for Collaborative Drug Research

Janssen Inc. announced it has signed an agreement, facilitated by the Johnson & Johnson Innovation center in California, with the University of Toronto's Centre for Collaborative Drug Research to form an open-source collaboration focused on novel therapeutic approaches to the treatment and management of mood disorders and Alzheimer's disease. The research project, called Neuroscience Catalyst, represents an innovative collaboration between industry, academia and the research community. Neuroscience Catalyst will help identify medical and scientific opportunities in early-stage development, which can progress to clinical treatment for brain disorders. Participating researchers will have access to cutting-edge drug discovery tools and information, as well as access to Johnson & Johnson Innovation and Janssen R&D resources, thereby facilitating research progress. The University of Toronto will co-fund the research and create a structure for soliciting and evaluating proposals from researchers, including from other academic hospitals and research institutions, as well as the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. Representatives from the University of Toronto and Janssen will form a Joint Steering Committee to review research proposals and provide recommendations to the CCDR for external review and approval. The Committee will also provide scientific oversight, advice on funded research and will monitor the progress of and review results arising from the research. The first call for proposals will be issued in November 2014.
