The SickKids Research Institute is Canada’s largest, hospital-based child health research institute. Our commitment is to improve the health of children, here in Canada and in the global community.

Our history is one of research innovation. The Research Institute was founded in 1954 with the belief that innovation was critical to the hospital’s mission to improve child health. We share the SickKids vision of Healthier Children. A Better World.
