Providence Health Care Research Institute
As a teaching hospital affiliated with the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University, we take pride in our researchers and programs that actively explore new ways of improving the health of our community.
We believe this research not only makes for a robust learning environment, but also leads to better patient care. The integration of research, education and care is what makes our Institute’s mission a possibility.
At PHCRI, our research expertise include laboratory, clinical, and epidemiological research in the fields of HIV/AIDS, heart disease, renal disease, gastro-intestinal diseases, psychiatry, geriatrics, and much more.
