In a historical-first, St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation and Western University announced two research chairs that are a critical step toward new approaches in imaging research and patient care in London and around the world. The combined value of both innovative new research chairs is $6.5M, which will be endowed in perpetuity to advance imaging research at Western University and Lawson Health Research Institute.
From walking to school to visiting the playground, children interact with their neighbourhoods every day. Lawson Health Research Institute’s Dr. Jason Gilliland is a leader in the study of how physical environments influence children’s health. This includes the study of how children’s surroundings affect their nutrition.
Lawson Health Research Institute is ranked eighth in the country according to the 2016 edition of “Canada’s Top 40 Research Hospitals List” by Research Infosource. This strong position has been maintained by Lawson for the past three years.
Dr. David Hill, Lawson Scientific Director, is pleased with the results.
