Baycrest is proud to be named among the country’s top research-intensive hospitals in the recent Canada’s Top 40 Research Hospitals rankings.
Across Canada, Baycrest ranked eighth for researcher intensity (the amount of research income per researcher). This is the seventh consecutive year in which Baycrest’s researchers have been recognized in this category. Researchers attracted an average of $560,900 per scientist, an increase of five per cent from the year before. Donor support from community partners, companies, non-profits, granting agencies and the government have all played a huge role in the success of research at Baycrest.
“Our researchers remain committed to leading the charge in the fight against dementia, and working towards a world where every older adult enjoys a life of purpose, inspiration, and fulfillment,” says Dr. Allison Sekuler, Vice-President, Research and the Sandra A. Rotman Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience at Baycrest. “We bridge social science, natural science, and health science, working with approaches from foundational science to clinical science and innovation, so that researchers across our campus can discover ways to improve aging brain health, and work toward dementia prevention, detection, and care.”
This year, Baycrest has launched a number of new initiatives
, such as the Kimel Family Centre for Brain Health and Wellness and its Clinical Trials Unit, and welcomed leading researchers to the Rotman Research Institute, including our new Chair in Cognitive Neurology and Innovation, Dr. Howard Chertkow
, and Canada 150 Research Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience of Memory and Aging, Dr. Donna Rose Addis
