When it comes to academics and cutting-edge research, Canada has a lot to be proud of.
Our country is home to some of the best researchers, scientists and research infrastructure in the world. Canada’s innovative pharmaceutical companies have partnered with universities and research centres across the country to leverage their expertise and push the boundaries of medical innovation. Put plainly, these collaborative efforts save lives.
Globally, the pharmaceutical industry contributes $6.7 billion in research funding to universities and clinical research institutes. Three of the best institutions are located right here in Canada. Sharing our findings is also crucial to our success. Our companies share their research with institutions like the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, the NEOMED Institute, MaRS Innovation and The Centre for Drug Research and Development. These and other partnerships have resulted in new treatments for both Canadians and others around the world.
