Faculty/Research

Members of the Department of Medical Biophysics have a strong record of excellence. Within the Faculty of Medicine, including active emeritus professors, there are 29 Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada. Seven of these hold their primary graduate appointments in Medical Biophysics and are active participants in our graduate program; more than half of all Fellows have presently or in the past a strong association with the Medical Biophysics graduate program. A similar pre-eminence of Medical Biophysics members is found among those invested in the Order of Canada, who have won Gairdner International Awards, who have had their publications selected as Science Citation Classics, or who have been selected as University Professors (reserved for the top 1% of University of Toronto tenured professors).
