November 14, 2019

Health Sciences North, and its affiliate the Health Sciences North Research Institute, is ranked among Canada’s Top 40 Research Hospitals for a sixth consecutive year by RE$EARCH Infosource. We are very proud of this accomplishment as a leading academic health sciences centre, at the core of Northern Ontario’s innovation health cluster. This cluster includes Laurentian University, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Lakehead University and the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre and its research institute.


HSN is committed to research focussed on finding solutions to the health care issues facing the people of Northeastern Ontario. Our research is focussed on four key priorities including cancer solutions, healthy aging, cardiovascular health and Indigenous health.


We also want to congratulate all researchers and staff as this honour wouldn’t be possible without their hard work and dedication.
