Lawson Health Research Institute (Lawson) is the research institute of London Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph’s Health Care London. As one of the largest hospital-based research institutes in Canada, Lawson is committed to furthering scientific knowledge to advance health care around the world. Lawson’s mission is to understand the basis of wellness and the dysfunctions of the body and mind that result in disease. Lawson works in collaboration with Western University and other research organizations across Canada and internationally. Within the Institute, a ‘bench to bedside’ approach to medical research is encouraged. This means our researchers focus their efforts on the development of new knowledge that can be applied directly to patient care within the hospitals. Through collaboration and the sharing of their discoveries, Lawson researchers make a difference in patients’ lives every day.
