Our Purpose

Excellence in research and innovation, that delivers better health for all.

Anchored by the foundational principle of “health and humanity for all”, we foster a culture of equity, diversity, inclusion, and allyship as we pursue research that shifts paradigms to advance science.

We are an interdisciplinary, collaborative, and supportive community dedicated to research outcomes that matter. Our core strengths lie within our people as we:

Lead discoveries;
Challenge the status quo; and
Translate learnings from bench to bedside.

Person-centred, ambitious, and innovative – we are The Research Institute of St. Joe’s Hamilton.

Foundational Principle

Health and Humanity for All

“Health and Humanity for All” encompasses all the qualities that underpin our philosophy, inspired by the Mission and Values of the Sisters of St. Joseph and the Ubunti spirit – I am because we are.
