Structural Genomics Consortium

University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario
What the facility does

A public-private partnership that supports the discovery of new medicines through open access research.

Area(s) of Expertise

The Structural Genomics Consortium catalyzes research in new areas of human biology and drug discovery by focusing explicitly on less well-studied areas of the human genome.

The Consortium accelerates research in these new areas by making all its research output available to the scientific community with no strings attached, and by creating an open collaborative network of scientists in hundreds of universities around the world and in nine global pharmaceutical companies.

Together, this network of academic and industry scientists is driving a new scientific and drug discovery ecosystem whose primary aim is to advance science and is less influenced by personal, institutional or commercial gain.
