Investigator-driven clinical research is a key element in modern health care systems to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, bringing tremendous benefits to patients and society. The Ottawa Methods Centre exists to promote and facilitate methodological excellence in clinical research at The Ottawa Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in Canada.

Created in 2006, the Methods Centre is part of the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. It includes experts in clinical trial design, data management and statistics who are located at both the Civic and the General Campuses of The Ottawa Hospital.

Methods Center scientists are internationally recognized for their contributions to clinical trial methodology, knowledge synthesis and knowledge transfer. The availability of the Ottawa Methods Centre to provide expertise and support to health professionals and researchers at all stages of a research project has been instrumental in the recognition of the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute as one of the leading centers for clinical research in Canada.
