Departmental Strategic Plan 2019-2023

I am pleased to provide you with a copy of the Department of Immunology’s Strategic Plan 2019 - 2023. 

This new plan is an extension of the one developed for 2014-2018, which was the first formal strategic plan of our Department. It builds on the excellence of the successful initiatives put forward in 2014, expands on emerging opportunities and achievements, and takes into consideration the recommendations from the Department’s 2017 External Review.  

Our 2019-2023 plan aligns well with the key themes of the Faculty of Medicine’s new academic strategic plan, since Collaboration, Groundbreaking Imagination, and Excellence through Equity are part of the fabric of our strategy.

This exciting vision for the future of the Department of Immunology, as outlined in the 20-19-2023 plan, was achieved through the much-appreciated effort and dedication of the Strategic Planning Steering Committee.  I am confident that with the implementation of this plan, we will continue to advance the research and academic mission of our Department and secure a strong future for Immunological discoveries and their applications at the University of Toronto

I look forward to working with you over the next four years, and beyond, as we implement the game-changing recommendations outlined in this document.
