Bridging the gap between data, research, and care, CHÉOS is a collaboration between cross-disciplinary scientists and expert research staff evaluating the effectiveness of health interventions at the population level. From assessing the cost-effectiveness of a new drug or treatment option to informing policy decisions that change how care is delivered, CHÉOS seeks to improve health outcomes for all.
CHÉOS investigators are known for the high calibre of research they undertake. The Centre is comprised of over 130 staff members and more than 75 scientists who are experts in their fields, including Canada Research Chairs, Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholars, and Canadian Institutes of Health Research Investigators.
The combination of our Scientist’s diverse expertise and the support departments that specialize in every part of the research process makes CHÉOS a unique and innovative hub for health research.
The work of our scientists and staff is often found in the pages of top journals.
Each year, we publish over 300 peer-reviewed papers.
CHÉOS investigators and research support staff are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Current projects include examining mental wellness during a pandemic, the impact of school disruptions, treatment options for COVID-19 and identifying workplace risks that may increase the risk of transmission to paramedics. Our investigators have also shared their expertise in a number of areas related to the pandemic.View All Posts
