Capstone Projects

Translation in the health sciences may involve developing novel tools, mechanisms, services, drugs, techniques, policies, and protocols that address the needs of people and populations.

Capstone Projects

Capstone projects are an opportunity for students to identify, propose, and execute a meaningful translational research project with tangible benefits for human health. Moving through the Toronto Translational TM Framework, students leverage the latest research and resources of the university, partner hospitals, and community networks.
