What does health research mean to you?
Health research means delivering the best health care by pushing the boundaries of science. It’s about understanding the basis of wellness and the dysfunctions of the body and mind that result in disease. At Lawson, our research expands the full continuum of life and mirrors the clinical areas at London Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph’s Health Care London. We make it our mission to test and deliver health care innovations for the benefit of patients in our community, in Ontario and beyond.
Health research also drives the future of health care—looking not just at where we are now but where we could be in ten or fifteen years. Ontario’s research hospitals bridge the gap between today’s discoveries and the next generation of health service and delivery. Where we could be won’t happen by chance. It will be the result of hospital-based research.
