Students in the Master of Medical Biotechnology (MMB) program recently paid a visit to Toronto’s MaRS Discovery District - one of the world's largest urban innovation hubs.
The March 20th trip emphasized the significance of innovation accelerators for new business start-ups.
Dr. Tranum Kaur, MMB Program Coordinator, says the students learned about the history of MaRS and its importance to Ontario's biotechnology sector and were exposed to various types of MaRS venture services and business accelerator models.
The students also added a short visit to the Royal Ontario Museum to their day in Toronto.
The trip was organized by Dr. Kaur with the support of Dr. Michael Boffa, MMB Academic Director, and the Centre for Executive and Professional Education (CEPE).
