Collaborating with the Heart Institute

The Heart Institute encourages investigators to collaborate with industry partners to broaden their research activities and maximize their research impact.  We have a proven track record of positive mutually beneficial industry partnerships.

There are a number of ways to collaborate with the Heart Institute.

Partnering Opportunities

Working with Our Investigators

If your company is looking to partner with a Heart Institute investigator, you can:

  • Learn more about our researchers to identify a potential collaborator; or
  • Contact us about your request and we can identify potential collaborators on your behalf.

Once a potential collaborator is identified, we will work with you and the investigator to establish a mutually beneficial partnering opportunity.

Working with Our Trainees

If your company is looking for candidates, we can work with Mitacs, OCE, Connect Canada, and other industry/academia partnership opportunities to facilitate partnerships.
