To kick off the many biotech events centred around Bio2002, the City of Toronto
will be launching the branding of the city's downtown science park.

Toronto's biomedical research community leads the world in the study of new
medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology procedures and products. Much of this
important research is done in the area bounded by Bloor, Spadina, Bay and
Dundas Streets, which contains the most dense concentration of biomedical
research facilities in North America.

By designating the area as "Toronto's Discovery District," the City of Toronto
recognizes the importance of this sector to Toronto's economy, and to the
potential future health of people worldwide. Come learn about exciting plans to
promote this district and the many accomplishments of its past, present and
future innovations.

Speakers at the event include:

- Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong, Economic Development and Parks Committee;
- Dr. John Evans, Chairman, Torstar Corporation - MARS Project;
- Dr. David Naylor, Dean of Medicine, University of Toronto; and
- Brenda Librecz, Managing Director, City of Toronto, Economic Development
Division.
