Research Axes

research axesFocused research and collaboration.
Research holds the promise of better ways to diagnose and treat disease. To reach these goals, investigators must often focus their work on very specific questions. To facilitate focus while encouraging collaboration across scientific disciplines, The Research Institute is organized into 11 axes or programs of research.

Axes span the spectrum of medical research
Some of our axes are dedicated to research into specific diseases such as cancer, respiratory illness or cardiovascular disease. Others are focused on the study of genetics, genomics or health outcomes – areas of science which are relevant across the whole spectrum of health care. Investigators work with colleagues in other axes, forming multidisciplinary teams to study the complex questions confronting modern medicine.
