Thrombosis & Atherosclerosis Research Institute (TaARI) (Joint Institute)

 

TAARI’s objectives are to carry out basic, clinical, and epidemiologic research in thrombosis, atherosclerosis, and cardiovascular disease including venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, coronary heart disease, arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, cardiac thromboembolism, cerebrovascular disease, and peripheral vascular disease

To carry out basic, clinical, and epidemiologic research in thrombosis, atherosclerosis, and cardiovascular disease including venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, coronary heart disease, arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, cardiac thromboembolism, cerebrovascular disease, and peripheral vascular disease. The scope of the research is broad, extending from the basic laboratory to the bedside and beyond into the local, national and international communities. A unique feature of TaARI is that the research is driven by clinically relevant problems which, if solved, have the potential to be translated rapidly into more efficacious and cost-effective patient care or preventive strategies.

Dino and GeoffTo act as a resource and methods centre for the design, execution and analysis of local, national and international clinical trials and epidemiologic studies in cardiovascular disease, and for other clinical programmes which are part of the strategic plan of the Hamilton Health Sciences.

To develop joint research programmes with scientists and clinicians based at the Hamilton Health Sciences, Cancer Care Ontario (formerly the Ontario Cancer Treatment and Research Foundation), Hamilton Regional Cancer Centre and with investigators based at other universities in Canada and abroad.

To encourage and facilitate clinical research among members of the medical and allied health professional staff at the Hamilton Health Sciences.

To obtain research funding from statutory granting agencies, from industry, and through partnerships with investors in the private sector.

To patent and commercialize inventions through the Hamilton Civic Hospitals Research Development Corporation.
