U of T rises to 19th globally in Times Higher Education world reputation rankings

The University of Toronto is increasingly regarded as one of the world’s leading academic institutions.

The 2019 Times Higher Education (THE) World Reputation Rankings, released yesterday, ranks U of T in 19th place globally. That’s up three spots from last year.

Among public universities, U of T ranked eighth in the world and fourth in North America.

“This fantastic result reflects the wealth of talent and expertise at the University of Toronto,” said U of T President Meric Gertler.

'The scale of grief and loss is terrible': Meet the U of T student fighting to prevent opioid overdose deaths

A young woman with blonde hair and a nose ring peers curiously at the camera. A middle-aged man with grey hair leans against a tree. A young man grins.

These photographs are scattered on the memorial wall of the Moss Park Overdose Prevention Site. They represent only a fraction of the overdose deaths the Moss Park community has suffered so far this year. The overdose crisis has taken the lives of more than 10,300 people in Canada in the past three years, but right now Toronto’s illegal opioid supply is more lethal than ever.

U of T PhD student wins global scholarship for combating antibiotic-resistant superbugs

Growing up in Nigeria, one of Chidozie Ojobor’s most visceral memories was the death of his older sister, Ginika, who died of typhoid fever in 1999.

“Her death caused me to want to understand what typhoid meant, the organism that caused the disease, how it was disseminated and so on,” says Ojobor, who would go on to study microbiology at the University of Nigeria.

His curiosity about infectious diseases became a passion, and his master’s education led to the study of phage therapy – using viruses to treat bacteria.
