Clinical Research Facility
The clinical research facility has created three distinct but conceptually linked centres, building on our strengths in brain sciences, cardiology and cancer. Innovations in image-guided therapeutics developed through preclinical and applied research elsewhere in the centre are tested in patient studies and clinical trials. This streamlined pathway will accelerate the translation of discovery research into patient benefits.
This facility is accessible to all clinical researchers at Sunnybrook Research Institute. Shared space comprises patient exam rooms, space for data and sample storage, and a procedure room for image-guided interventions. Imaging systems for procedure planning and assessment, including magnetic resonance, computed tomography and ultrasound systems, are also linked to the facility.
