DiscoverResearch is the place to find U of T's research experts.

At the University of Toronto (U of T), our faculty conduct research that has impacts across a broad range of disciplines. DiscoverResearch is a new online tool to highlight, celebrate and promote all of our research experts to help spark discovery, connection and collaboration.

Faculty can use this tool for the following.

  • Showcase their research and expertise – highlight artistic performances, compositions, podcasts, videos, etc.
  • Signal availability for media requests, graduate student supervision, industry and academic collaboration, etc. Identify other academics for collaboration opportunities
  • Leverage automated data from trusted sources – publications, grants, awards, etc. – from TSpace, PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, RIS, and more
  • Download up-to-date CVs and activity reports, and integrate with the Canadian Common CV (CCV) soon!
