David Braley Cardiac Vascular and Stroke Research Institute (Canada)

Hamilton Health Sciences' main research priority is the development of a new research Institute at the Hamilton General Hospital, which will provide an additional 197,700 square feet of research space specializing in cardiac, vascular and stroke research. The David Braley Cardiac, Vascular and Stroke Research Institute will focus on:

* Building clinical research capacity in thromboembolism, obesity, metabolic diseases and surgery, through both clinical trials and longitudinal cohort studies
* Knowledge integration among healthcare providers and policy makers for optimal health care delivery
* Expanding population-based studies to include genomics and proteomics

The expansion will enable strategic space allocation to enhance our collaborative environment and optimal health care model. This new infrastructure will increase our ability to continue to attract world-class, highly qualified professionals to the Hamilton region. It will also create an opportunity to mentor and train new research leaders and health practitioners
