On May 30th, 2017, Innovation Support Services (ISS) hosted two members of the JLabs @ Toronto team. The guests included Head of JLabs @ Toronto, Rebecca Yu and JLabs Innovation Activation Specialist, Breanne Halyk. This visit enabled Faculty members and students to explore and discover opportunities for developing scientific innovations with JLabs in Canada.
The day consisted of a presentation at the Faculty of Medicine, followed by a tour of the BMC’s Virus Manufacturing Facility at the OHRI, and a final presentation at the uOttawa Heart Institute. This encounter not only presented excellent opportunities for uOttawa researchers to learn more about JLabs program offerings but also presented JLabs with strong insight into the promising research initiatives and community fostered at the University of Ottawa. As a result, the visit concluded with discussions around potential initiatives for uOttawa institutes to engage with JLabs.
