The Toronto Region Research Alliance
(TRRA)—a public-private partnership supported by the governments of Ontario and Canada—has released the second publication in its Regional Innovation Cluster series. This newest publication, which profiles Toronto's particular advantages in the life-sciences sector, provides invaluable information to Toronto researchers, policy-makers and entrepreneurs.
"Canada's pharmaceutical and medical device markets rank in the top ten globally, and are largely concentrated in the Toronto Region. Building on a tradition of medical innovations, the Life Sciences cluster in the Toronto Region is an integrated ecosystem of multinational and startup businesses, supporting services, reputable researchers and renowned research centres. This critical mass of industry, intellectual capital and significant R&D infrastructure forms a large Life Sciences footprint."
"The global share of Life Science publications from the Toronto Region has grown 25% over the past decade, with notable strength in the fields of oncology, neurology and medical imaging."
