The University of Toronto (U of T) was founded in 1827 in Toronto, Canada. U of T has more than 44,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The Faculty of Applied Sciences and Engineering and the Faculty of Medicine are noteworthy. Insulin and the first stem cell research was conducted at the University of Toronto. Astronomers and physicists at U of T identified Cygnus-X as a black hole. The University of Toronto receives significant grants and funding due to the high caliber of their research teams.
Every year, humans advance climate change and global warming - and quite likely our own eventual extinction - by injecting about 30 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Imagine how much dental care you'd need if you had 300 or more teeth packed together on each side of your mouth.
A team of physicists at the University of Toronto (U of T) have taken a step toward making the essential building block of quantum computers out of pure light. Their advance, described in a paper published this week in Nature ...
A multinational team of scientists have sifted through cells of vastly different organisms, from amoebae to worms to mice to humans, to reveal how proteins fit together to build different cells and bodies.
Researchers successfully combine two different materials to create new hyper-efficient light-emitting crystal
It's snack time: you have a plain oatmeal cookie, and a pile of chocolate chips. Both are delicious on their own, but if you can find a way to combine them smoothly, you get the best of both worlds.
Toronto researchers have discovered that a single molecular event in our cells could hold the key to how we evolved to become the smartest animal on the planet.
A team of University of Toronto chemists has created a battery that stores energy in a biologically derived unit, paving the way for cheaper consumer electronics that are easier on the environment.
A famous fossil of an early primate shares more in common with modern lemurs based on how its teeth erupted, according to new model developed at U of T Scarborough.
Turning carbon dioxide into stored energy sounds like science fiction: researchers have long tried to find simple ways to convert this greenhouse gas into fuels and other useful chemicals. Now, a group of researchers led ...
The Tyrannosaurus rex and its fellow theropod dinosaurs that rampage across the screen in movies like Jurassic World were successful predators partly due to a unique, deeply serrated tooth structure that allowed them to easily ...
