You can help us find new ways to treat and diagnose diseases through discovery and innovation. Make a difference by supporting:

Medical research helps us learn how our bodies work, why we get sick, and what we can do to get better. It also provides valuable insight into diseases, so that clinicians can detect, treat and prevent them from happening.

Lawson Health Research Institute – the research arm of St. Joseph’s – is one of the largest hospital-based research institutes in Canada. Lawson has some of the brightest minds from around the world testing, improving and advancing new medications, devices and methods of treatment.

St. Joseph’s ‘bench to bedside’ approach allows us to apply medical discoveries and innovations directly to patient care – helping us tackle some of the most pressing health issues of our time, including cancers, diabetes, dementia and mental illness.

With your help we can invest in healthier and more productive communities. Together we can transform care happening right now, and in the future, through DISCOVERY AND INNOVATION.
