Supporting Excellence

As one of Canada’s top ten research institutes, Lawson Health Research Institute is committed to furthering scientific knowledge to advance health care around the world. Our research expands the continuum of life – from birth to death - and we are home to over 100 national and world medical firsts.

For years, Lawson researchers have worked to find more effective ways to treat illness. Today more than ever, they are working to prevent illness before it starts. Imagine what it would mean if we found a way to cut the rate of second heart attacks in half, or prevent a person living with a mental illness from falling into homelessness?

With your help, we are forging the future of health care.

Support us to make sure we have the right people, the right space and the right tools to continue making discoveries and saving lives.
