Research critical to restoring lives affected by stroke

Stroke is a huge public health issue in Canada and a major cause of disability. There are more than 400,000 Canadians living with long-term disability from stroke – physical, cognitive, psycho-social and communication deficits that impair the ability to lead normal lives.

Leveraging resources to change the landscape of human health

At the University Health Network, we leverage the resources provided to us by our funding partners and generous donors, and use research as a tool to make discoveries that change the landscape of human health.

Why do we need research in mental health and addictions?

In health care overall, research has driven many of the remarkable advances we’ve seen in our lifetime, which have even made some formerly terminal illnesses treatable. These changes didn’t happen by chance. They happened through rigorous, focused research.
