Research & Discovery

Advances in health care do not happen by accident.

They come about when passionate clinician-scientists determinedly pursue answers to seemingly intractable medical problems; when doctors who care for patients are able to take the time to study and solve a problem they encounter in their daily work; when philanthropy seed-funds innovative research that saves and extends lives, shortens recovery times, alleviates pain and offering and improves quality of life for patients alongside their families and loved ones.

The breakthroughs of tomorrow start with the research of today. You have supported the experts at VGH and UBC Hospital uncover the mysteries of the brain, helping transform treatments and improve patient outcomes.
