Leading the way to better health
Research is an integral part of Dalhousie Medical School’s mission to advance the quality of health and health care in the Maritimes and beyond. Not only does research lead the way to the better understanding and treatment of disease, it also provides health care providers and policymakers with the solid information that is essential for making real improvements to clinical practice, health service delivery and public health policy.
Dalhousie Medical School researchers are finding better ways to detect, diagnose and treat a range of diseases common in the Maritimes – from cancer and dementia to heart disease and stroke. Our researchers are also finding ways to deliver health care services more efficiently, prevent disease, and improve overall health in Maritime communities.
