U of T researchers show how a protein found in cardiac muscle helps prevent heart failure

Researchers at the University of Toronto have found that a receptor expression-enhancing protein contributes to normal heart development and function by regulating the sarcoplasmic reticulum, a network of tubules found in cardiac muscle cells.

The unexpected link between the ozone hole and Arctic warming: U of T expert

One of the earliest climate model predictions of how human-made climate change would affect our planet showed that the Arctic would warm about two to three times more than the global average. Forty years later, this “Arctic amplification” has been observed first-hand.

Paired with a smartphone, pill-sized 'heater' developed at U of T could be used to diagnose infectious disease

Researchers at the University of Toronto have developed a tiny “heater” – about the size of a pill – that could allow resource-limited regions around the world to test for infectious diseases without the need for specialized training or costly lab equipment.

The technology, developed by researchers in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, regulates the temperature of biological samples through different stages of diagnostic testing, which is crucial to the accuracy of test results.
