Brainstorm, a special edition of YFile publishing on the first Friday of every month, showcases research and innovation at York University. It offers compelling, in-depth articles about the world-leading, policy-relevant work of York’s academics and researchers. It covers all disciplines and encompasses both pure and applied research.

Launched in January 2017, Brainstorm is produced out of the Office of the Vice-President Research & Innovation in partnership with Communications & Public Affairs; overseen by Megan Mueller, senior manager, Research Communications; and edited by Jenny Pitt-Clark, YFile editor.
