Description of the designation:
Support the Faculty’s strategic priorities
Support the latest strategic priorities for the Faculty of Medicine: the new University of Ottawa Brain and Mind Research Institute, medical education research and cardiovascular research. Supporting research gives us the opportunity to reach incredible milestones and medical breakthroughs. For instance, scientist Dr. David Park has uncovered new targets linking proteins to help repair neurons. The finding will dramatically improve treatments for both Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
