In 2012, we witnessed not only key
scientific breakthroughs in a number of diseases and treatment
therapies, we also celebrated special moments like the appointments of
some of our scientists to the Order of Canada and the Royal Society of
Canada - moments which continue to show the world why the Lunenfeld is
the place to be for award-winning scientists who are transforming the
way we care for our patients.
Over the past year, Lunenfeld scientists
made leading-edge discoveries in the prevention, detection and
treatment of a variety of conditions and disorders, including cancer,
kidney disease, women and infants’ health, and neurodegenerative
disorders. Here are a few of our biggest highlights from 2012.
