Meet U of T’s next generation of scientists, thinkers and inventors

The impressive young scholars you’ll meet here are seeking answers to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Some offer a fresh perspective on the human condition – why we behave unethically or become activists, and how we communicate through words and song. What they share with all of their U of T colleagues is a deep curiosity about the world and a passion for inquiry. We hope you enjoy their stories.
