 The Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute of Mount Sinai Hospital, a University of Toronto affiliated research centre, was established in 1985. It is one of the world's leading centres in biomedical research. We have 100,000 sq. ft of laboratory space, with an additional 25,000 sq. ft. of pre-clinical research laboratory space, and an annual budget of $65 million (2004/2005).

The Institute is committed to excellence in biomedical research and the training of young investigators. Strong partnerships with industry and the clinical programs of Mount Sinai Hospital ensure that scientific knowledge is used to promote human health.

Our Institute investigators and Associate Investigators also have faculty-level appointments at the University of Toronto. Departments include Medical Genetics, Biochemistry, Pathology, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Bioengineering, Physiology, Surgery and Pathology. Over 200 graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and clinical research fellows are being trained at the Lunenfeld each year throughout our research programs.

The research programs at the Lunenfeld are focused on a number of interdisciplinary centres of excellence. The goal of these eight interrelated programs is to understand the function of our genes and how genetic pathways and environmental factors lead to the development of human disease such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension, premature labour, depression and osteoporosis. Our approach at the Lunenfeld allows for the application of health research from molecules to populations.
