Research at the IWK Health Centre is flourishing, thanks to the efforts of our exceptionally talented researchers. They include clinicians in a wide range of health professions, as well as basic scientists, epidemiologists and social scientists. Their work spans all four pillars of research: basic biomedical, clinical, health services and population health research. Together, IWK researchers are building a solid platform of knowledge that we can build upon to address all the key elements that influence health.
Many of our researchers have come to Halifax from other provinces and countries to join the IWK and Dalhousie University, our affiliated academic institution. The high calibre of our growing research community is attracting top people, to the benefit of the communities we serve.
Our researchers are noted for their academic credentials and high-impact publications. They are equally well known for their willingness to share knowledge and to work with colleagues toward common goals. Through their ideas, their energy, their dedication, and their teamwork, they are making a positive difference, every day, to the health and wellbeing of women, children, youth and families in the Maritimes.
A number of researchers in our main research areas are profiled in this portal. We invite you to take a few moments to learn more about our research and the people working in these areas:
