Research Overview

We have organized our research into distinct but overlapping themes. Most of the themes target different populations. The other is a cross-cutting theme that focuses on research aimed at understanding, implementing and 'scaling up' effective policies and programs:

  • Healthy Cities / Healthy Communities
  • Starting healthy staying healthy
  • Marginalized populations
  • Indigenous health and well-being
  • Health of people of African descent 
  • Implementation science

Each research theme is co-lead by a Senior Research Scholar and an Associate Research Scholar. They work with the Scientific Director, and a team of researchers, research coordinators and students to develop and maintain a successful research direction.
