The Ryerson Biomedical Research Laboratory at MaRS Discovery District is now open and operational! Thanks to the terrific efforts of the project team, Faculty of Science User Group and construction partners, the project was completed ahead of schedule and within the project budget.
Faculty members and researchers moved in at the end of August, in time for the new academic year. Ryerson’s President formally launched the new facility in early October.
Given the careful handling required for moving highly-specialized equipment and delicate “in-progress” research projects from their existing facilities around campus, the move was complex. Now, the nine Principal Investigators (PIs) and their projects have been successfully situated together in one up-to-date laboratory. Although a few of the normal final adjustments and follow-ups are underway, the space is already productive and is Ryerson’s newest research jewel.
