Our Research

Research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute is focused on answering important health questions and translating new findings into benefits for patients and society. With more than 1,700 scientists, clinical investigators, trainees and staff, we are investigating virtually every major disease and condition. Our research spans the full spectrum of health science, from basic molecular biology and epidemiology, to clinical trials and the development of new therapies, to health services and knowledge translation research.

We are organized into five major programs, with three crosscutting strategic research areas, and are home to numerous world-class research centres focused on specific diseases and conditions.
