Tender Loving Research

Research breakthroughs at The Ottawa Hospital mean better care and life-saving medicine. Every day we look beyond the laboratory and see the results of what we do – lives saved, better care, suffering stopped. We relentlessly pursue answers to the world's most challenging health care problems and we do so with knowledge, experience and care. Our research is fuelled by a passion to create made-in-Ottawa solutions for a healthier world.

Let's give the world a little TLR.
