Welcome from the Vice President
Welcome to University Health Network's Research website.
Our five UHN research institutes are committed to research with scientific and clinical impact. The proximity of basic researchers and clinician-scientists provides the full spectrum of expertise required to make discoveries in basic, translational and clinical research.
We have launched programs in genomics, proteomics, advanced diagnostics, eHealth, regenerative medicine, cancer informatics, cardiology, transplantation, immunology and autoimmunity, infectious diseases, diabetes, neural and visual sciences, rehabilitation, urban and community health and musculoskeletal disease.
UHN is committed to training the next generation of researchers and clinicians in cutting-edge molecular medicine. UHN is fully affiliated with the University of Toronto and provides positions for over 1100 trainees in research.
Our technology transfer specialists in the Office of Technology Development & Commercialization work to develop and maintain relationships between the UHN research community and the private sector. Technology transfer also protects and markets the intellectual property generated by our researchers.
I invite you to read more about us, to learn about our capabilities, to explore potential partnerships with us and to contact us for more information about anything you read on this site.
