The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) is a beloved institution that’s widely recognized for being an anchor in our community. The CHEO Research Institute is the research arm of CHEO that works to create new knowledge and evidence to help provide the world-class care that CHEO is known for.
It’s a privilege to lead the innovative and dedicated team of clinical researchers, lab scientists, and staff that the CHEO Research Institute attracts. Our investigators mentor many of the best and brightest students from the University of Ottawa and across the country. I am constantly impressed with their passion and devotion to the mission of improving the health of children and youth.
I anticipate that the many strong collaborations formed between laboratory scientists and clinicians at the CHEO Research institute will drive important research discoveries and help translate them from the bench top into front-line patient care.
Of course, we cannot do what we do best without the support from our community through the CHEO Foundation. Our partnership is one fueled by a mutual excitement and respect for research and its impact on health care. We are also grateful for the tremendous collaborations we have with the University of Ottawa and with other research institutes within Ottawa, across Canada and around the world.
I invite you to visit our web site on a regular basis to keep up to date on the CHEO Research Institute. I think you will find that we live by our vision, which guides everything we do: Discoveries today for healthier kids tomorrow.
