The Faculty of Health and Social Development is home to active programs of research and scholarship focused on some of the most challenging health and social issues facing Canadians.
Faculty-led investigative teams have received national and international attention for their research on a range of topics and have attracted an impressive record of funding.
Our current research projects reflect the use of diverse research approaches, the opportunities for research within and across disciplines, and our commitment to excellence in research.
As our faculty grows and our community partnerships expand, we will continue to build our research programs.
