Our mission and vision


The Centre for Perioperative Brain Health will develop innovative diagnostic, prevention and treatment strategies to improve quality of life, reduce morbidity and health-care costs of patients with perioperative brain dysfunction. We will achieve our mission through strategic interdisciplinary and inter-professional partnerships at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (SHSC) and within the greater academic community. This program will align with the strategic priorities at SHSC and at the University of Toronto.


We envision a future with surgical and anesthesia approaches that preserve and restore brain health.
