Finding better ways to treat disease and illness
From biologists, chemists and physicists, to psychologists, dietitians and doctors, our affiliated researchers are a diverse group of dedicated people who want to make a difference. They work together to understand, diagnose, treat and prevent disease and illness. IHMRI researchers are involved in different areas of health and medical research, including basic science in the laboratory, clinical trials, as well as public health studies. This diversity is our strength. At IHMRI we want to harness the theoretical knowledge of scientists with the practical insights of clinicians and health professionals. We believe that only by working together can we find solutions to the increasingly complex health problems facing our society.
