We are delighted to welcome the international biopharmaceutical leader, Merck, known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, as the inaugural industry supporter of U of T Mississauga’s Blue Ticket program at SpinUp, U of T’s first wet-lab incubator for life science innovation.

Merck’s support will provide mentorship and financial support for one early-stage life science venture, jumpstarting the Blue Ticket program toward its long-term vision: to power the next generation of global health innovators and innovation from Mississauga.
