Supporting Medical Research

Our mission is to facilitate and support medical research. We specialize in finding funding for research done by Canadian physicians. We provide a wide range of research support services with on-staff epidemiologists, bio-statisticians and research associates. Our services are risk-free and come at no initial cost.

1. Define a project

We help design research that gets funded.

2. Document

We help collect, document and archive data to meet regulatory requirements.

3. Get funding

We help create research proposals or reports that maximize the odds of getting funded.

Our Services

We provide a wide range of services to support medical research. Our epidemiologists can help design and refine research protocols. Our research assistants can help collect and archive your data and our bio-statisticians can help conduct cutting-edge analyses. We also specialize in securing corporate funding for medical research, from NRC corporate grants to SR&ED tax credits. We charge a success fee on the funding obtained by medical corporations to support our institute. If no funding is obtained, our services are free. If funding is obtained, proceeds go right back into supporting medical research.
