KGH Research Institute


KGHRI: Research. Collaboration. Innovation

We are a not-for-profit academic health research institute and a collaborative partner with Kingston Health Sciences Centre, Providence Care and Queen’s University. At KGHRI, more than 350 investigators conduct innovative research across a broad spectrum of disciplines, from the genetic mechanisms of disease to new approaches to end of life care. 


Opened in September 2017, the W. J. Henderson Centre for Patient-Oriented Research provides outstanding opportunities for collaborative R&D into innovative materials, tools and treatments, leading to best practices and improved care.

This 10,000-square-foot interdisciplinary hub consolidates both inpatient and outpatient research into a single, in-hospital location. Shared access by researchers from multiple disciplines enables efficient and safe assessment, investigation and monitoring of people involved in clinical research projects and programs throughout the hospital.
