The Ottawa Health Research Institute (OHRI) is a non-profit academic health research institute that is part of The Ottawa Hospital, and a major part of the University of Ottawa Faculties of Medicine and Health Science. It is one of the largest hospital-based research institutes in North America.[1]

Formed on April 1, 2001, by the merger of the Loeb Health Research Institute and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, the OHRI is a multi-campus facility. OHRI scientists are at work on an array of questions in the fields of cancer therapeutics; clinical epidemiology; diseases of ageing; hormones, growth, and development; molecular medicine; neuroscience, and vision.

The OHRI's mandate is to advance knowledge of health and disease on multiple fronts, ranging from increasing understanding of what is happening at the molecular and cellular level in complex disease states, to elucidating best practises in the delivery of health care.
