Enabling Research that Really Helps our Patients

Did you know that every day, there are more than 770 researchers and staff hard at work at St. Joe’s conducting research studies that test new treatments for lung diseases like asthma, COPD and pulmonary fibrosis; they’re developing faster ways to test for viruses like COVID-19, writing the clinical care guidelines for kidney disease and looking at the effects of Cannabis use post-legalization. 

With centres of research excellence in lung and chest health, kidney and urinary disease, mental health and addictions, robotic surgery and the evaluation of medicine and our bench-to-bedside approach, we’re making sure that every research study performed has the power to change and enhance the care we provide to patients at St. Joe’s. You can help our researchers as they strive to unravel the mysteries of illness and disease with a gift to support research at our Hospital.

  • Bench to bedside approach means every research study performed at St. Joe’s is improving the care of patients.
  • Research isn’t covered in funding Hospitals receive from the province, so we work to raise funds to build a healthier future for us all.
