OTTAWA, November 8, 2018 – The CHEO Research Institute is pleased to announce that it has been named one of Canada’s Top 40 Research Hospitals. The organization moved up one spot on the Research Infosource listing, from 25 to 24, reflecting a 9.1% increase in the last fiscal year. The CHEO Research Institute is fortunate to have a group of leading researchers and top-notch staff, generous grant and CHEO Foundation donors and the support of the tens of thousands of children, youth and families who are part of our research.

  • Awards for our researchers in the areas of innovation, technology, biomedicine, mentorship and early career. 
The organization is also fortunate to have the support of CHEO Foundation donors who help leverage additional funding that allows the Research Institute to have significant impact in the area of pediatric health research.

“I believe that we’re doing some of the best pediatric research in the country,” says Dr. Martin Osmond, CEO and Scientific Director of the CHEO Research Institute and VP, Research at CHEO. “ This research is then transformed into patient care so CHEO can provide the best life for the children, youth and families that they serve. “
