Who We Are
The Lawson Health Research Institute (Lawson) is located in London, Ontario,
Canada and is the research institute of London Health Sciences Centre
(LHSC) and St. Joseph's Health Care, London
(St. Joseph's). As one of the largest hospital-based research institutes in Canada, Lawson is committed to
furthering scientific knowledge to advance health care around the world.
Within the Institute, a 'bench to bedside' approach to medical research is encouraged. This means, our researchers focus their efforts on the development of new knowledge that can be
applied directly to patient care within the hospitals. Through collaboration and the sharing of their discoveries, Lawson researchers make a difference in patients' lives every day.
