Science is more important than ever.

COVID-19 has thrust science into the spotlight and shown the world that research is critical for solving global challenges.

From the outset of the pandemic, the Krembil community has adapted to change and pushed forward—steadfast in its mission to develop cures for diseases of the brain and spine, bones and joints, and eyes.

This year’s Krembil Annual Report highlights a selection of our greatest research achievements over the past year, including:

● advancing our understanding of why men and women experience chronic pain differently;

● validating new classification criteria for systemic lupus; and

● developing a molecular model of the brain connections that are involved in visual processing.

The report also highlights recent events at which Krembil scientists and trainees shared their expertise with the community to promote public engagement and ensure continued support for research.
