About the Faculty of Medicine Research Office



The University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine and our nine fully affiliated hospitals bring together one of the largest communities of health researchers in the world. More than 1,600 principal investigators in 26 academic departments conducted $974 million in research last year. Together, we are leading research innovation to do what can't be done, and improving the health of people and populations around the globe.

The Faculty of Medicine Research Office works under the direction of the Vice Dean, Research & Innovation to facilitate and coordinate research activities in all areas of the Faculty and affiliated research institutes.

The University's Research Services Office (RSO) assures that research-related policies and procedures meet the needs of our faculty, students and staff.
