The Research Institute of St. Joe's Hamilton is an academic and research community focused on improving the quality of life for our patients and community members, as well as those diagnosed with a diverse range of medical conditions around the world. 

We function as a scientific community for the good of our community and the world we share.  As faculty members of McMaster University, our world-class researchers work alongside local clinicians and students – fostering a culture of exploration, innovation and inquiry at St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton.

Our community is a place where:

  • every patient is engaged
  • every clinician, allied health professional and employee is an explorer
  • the disciplines of science advance in willing partnership
  • improving quality of life is the primary metric
