A Canadian semiconductor startup based on technology developed in the lab of the University of Toronto’s Sorin Voinigescu has raised US$42 million to help alleviate increasingly congested wireless networks.

The latest round of financing, which brings the total raised to over US$110 million, promises to help Toronto-based Peraso Technologies further develop its chips for the 60 gigahertz (GHz) band, which allows more data to be pushed through wireless hotspots for applications like streamed 4K television or virtual reality.

U of T researcher's open science drug discovery model expands to neurodegenerative diseases

Parkinson’s disease and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS, are the newest frontiers for open science drug discovery, a global movement led by University of Toronto researchers that puts knowledge sharing and medication affordability ahead of patents and profits.

Thanks to $1.5 million from Toronto’s Krembil Foundation, Medicines 4 Neurodegenerative Diseases, also known as M4ND Pharma, will pursue promising new genetic drug targets for these intractable nervous system disorders.
