Research and Innovation

Our Research Council facilitates the coordination of research from within the Division as well as promotes the cooperation with other paediatric centres in Canada, and around the world. We have a dedicated coordinator that oversees research efforts in the Department in order to bring research to a new level. Our highly successful student volunteer research assistant in child health program (SEARCH) facilitates the enrollment of emergency department patients into many impactful local, national, and international prospective research studies every year. Learn more about SEARCH.
