U of T, Sunnybrook Foundation receive $12M toward expansion of neuromodulation centre


The University of Toronto and Sunnybrook Foundation have received a $12M gift from the Harquail family to secure and expand the Harquail Centre for Neuromodulation at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. The Harquail Centre engages in clinical care, research, innovation, education, and advocacy related to neuromodulation treatment. U of T and Sunnybrook have committed a combined $4M in matching funds to the centre, with plans to raise an additional $8M. “With this gift from the Harquail family, we will see better outcomes with fewer complications related to some of the most pernicious brain disorders,” said U of T President Meric Gertler.
