About the University

The Senatore lab is located in the William G. Davis Building in the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM). We are part of the Department of Biology, a vibrant, diverse and energetic group of researchers with interests that span four major areas: Cell, Molecular & Developmental Biology; Physiology & Behaviour; Genetics & Evolution; Ecology & Field Biology, Whole Organisms (see website: UTM Biology)

UTM is a beautifully located campus of the University of Toronto, backing onto the credit river and nestled within a residential area in Mississauga Ontario, Canada. The campus is 33 kilometers west of the University’s St. George campus near downtown Toronto, with easy access to downtown via University shuttle buses and public transportation. UTM is a growing campus with 15 academic departments, 147 programs and over 14,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The Department of Biology itself is growing rapidly with 4 new principal investigators joining the faculty within the next 2 years (including the Senatore lab), and additional hires on the horizon. Currently, we have over 2 dozen active researchers with over 40 graduate students and numerous postdoctoral researchers, conducting cutting edge research using the latest techniques, and collaborating with acclaimed colleagues from the other two University of Toronto campuses, St. George’s and Scarborough, as well as with national and international researchers.
