The Centre for Health Innovation
We are a radically interdisciplinary, solutions-focused group of clinician-scientists, engineers, humanities experts, and basic and social scientists tackling the increasing complexity of today’s health and healthcare delivery challenges. We are transforming health research by creating cohesive interdisciplinary teams, state-of-the-art platforms, and community partnerships to forge paths towards the next generation of health solutions.

Development and Validation of Prognostic Radiomic Markers of Response and Recurrence for Patients with Colorectal Liver Metastases
A core tenet of the emerging field of radiomics is that modern, high-resolution CT imaging contains information that is invisible to the human eye, but that can be extracted and analyzed using image processing and computer vision techniques.
We have nearly 1800 square meters of space in Kingston Health Sciences Centre across the Kingston General Hospital and Hotel Dieu Sites. The vision for the space was to increase the frequency of interactions to encourage collaborations across disciplines. There are 2 large meeting rooms, one smaller one, biohazard I and II facilities, dry lab space and collaborative working areas.
