Education & Training

Education and training opportunities at Sunnybrook Research Institute Education, training and research are linked intricately at Sunnybrook Research Institute (SRI). We are fully affiliated with the University of Toronto, where our scientists teach in the faculty of medicine.

We offer hands-on learning opportunities for undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows through research projects across three platforms: biological sciences, evaluative clinical sciences, and physical sciences.

We also welcome new research trainees like engineers and physicists into our labs every year. They receive the chance to refine their skills as they apply their knowledge to our priority science questions, and we receive the benefit of that knowledge in turn.

Calling all undergraduate researchers!

In January 2014, the winner will be awarded $10,000. The PDF with the application guidelines is here (PDF, 176 kb). Submissions are due September 12, 2013.
