• Dr. Ramalho-Santos will be the Canada 150 Research Chair in Developmental Epigenetics and lead an exciting new initiative in this area in Toronto.
• The LTRI is the top biomedical research institute in Canada: http://www.lunenfeld.ca/
• The LTRI has major strengths in Systems Biology and Developmental and Stem Cell Biology.
• The lab will be supported by stellar core facilities for sequencing, proteomics, imaging, flow cytometry, metabolomics: http://research.lunenfeld.ca/invivo/?page=Technology%20Platforms
• The LTRI has one of the best academic mouse facility in North America http://www.phenogenomics.ca/
• The University of Toronto is one of the top 20 universities in the world. In one single campus in downtown Toronto there is arguably the highest concentration of top biomedical research in North America.
• Very interactive/collaborative community.

Toronto is a vibrant, cosmopolitan, diverse, liberal and safe city: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toronto
