Science drives tools development which is tested on patients leading to further basic science research

Sunnybrook Research Institute’s Schulich heart research program is a leader in cardiovascular research in four major research areas:

  1. Interventions: including emerging approaches in cardiac surgery, endovascular treatment and medical management

  2. Imaging strategies: for disease assessment, treatment planning, therapy guidance and follow-up

  3. Outcomes and population health studies: health care outcomes research

  4. Cell biology: for regenerative therapies
