Our basic and clinical scientists work shoulder-to-shoulder with their clinical colleagues - nurses and health professionals - bringing science to the clinic. We are working collaboratively towards new advances in understanding and preventing disease, improving the quality of care for those we cannot cure, and developing innovative treatments to improve and extend life.
The Practice-Based Research initiative (PBR) continually improves the care & treatment we provide to our patients. It includes a broad continuum of research activity from confirming clinical eligibility, to conducting literature reviews, program evaluation and translation of best practices across all health professions.
The Women's College Research Institute was established as a joint partnership with the University of Toronto. The Centre facilitates a comprehensive approach to women-focused research, health programs and education initiatives. The Centre serves as the research arm of the World Health Organization and is the only collaborating centre in women’s health in the Western Hemisphere.
Additionally, the Institute for Clinical and Evaluative Sciences (ICES), established by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MoHLTC) as a research institute focusing on the effectiveness, efficiency and quality of medical care for Ontarians, is located on the Sunnybrook campus.
Several funding sources and granting agencies have been compiled as potential sponsors for investigations undertaken with the Interdepartmental Division of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Toronto.
Please review the Funding Opportunities area of the Sunnybrook Research Institute website for further details.
