This year’s report features recent discoveries from Krembil’s three research institutes: Krembil Brain Institute, Schroeder Arthritis Institute and Donald K. Johnson Eye Institute.

Tomorrow's health care depends on today's breakthroughs.

At Krembil, we stand at the forefront of exploration, redefining possibilities in science and medicine to pave the way for a healthier future.

This year’s Krembil Annual Report, Breakthroughs for Tomorrow, is a testament to our dedication to discovery and the transformative strides that we have made in diverse realms of research.

In this report, we delve into some of our basic and clinical research achievements from the past year that epitomize our efforts to push the boundaries of scientific understanding, including:

 Developing a tool to calculate brain age and linking chronic pain to accelerated brain aging

 Identifying biomarkers that can predict the speed of osteoarthritis progression

 Synthesizing a naturally occurring molecule with the potential to treat glaucoma and other inflammatory diseases

Complementing these achievements, the report shines a light on our recent outreach initiatives that showcase our commitment to spreading discovery beyond laboratory walls and academic circles and making science accessible to everyone.

The report also pays homage to former Institute Director Dr. Donald Weaver, who returned to the lab full-time last year, embodying our relentless commitment to scientific exploration.

Join us on our journey of discovery, where diverse perspectives converge, and cutting-edge science takes centre stage.
