Cardiovascular Research in Ottawa

The Ottawa region is fast becoming an internationally recognized hub in cardiovascular disease (CVD) research excellence. Ottawa is teeming with high calibre scientists and clinicians studying cardiovascular disease and related areas of health research. Our Ottawa-wide CVD-research enterprise, comprised of extensive collaborative activities, brings together this immense talent, maximizes the efficient use of resources and capitalizes on our multidisciplinary expertise.

To achieve excellence and important breakthroughs, research must be collaborative and multi-disciplinary.

In addition to the extensive program at UOHI (including PhD scientist and MD investigator group leaders as well as talented trainees and staff), other Ottawa-based institutions are engaged in exemplary work in the study of cardiovascular disease. These include the University of Ottawa, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, Carleton University, Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, National Research Council, and others.
