Research

Our scientists are performing cutting-edge research. Help them unlock discoveries and answer challenges the world needs solved.

 

Make an impact...

Thanks to donors like you, our talented research teams can search for the clues that will unlock the mysteries of illnesses like cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's or stroke. These conditions impact everyone; perhaps your family has a personal story. Your gift will help us discover new ways to diagnose, treat and ultimately prevent these illnesses.

An impact during a crisis

Our students need your support now more than ever. COVID-19 has changed the landscape of learning and our students are the most vulnerable. We urge you to consider making a donation to our student COVID support fund.

An impact on illness

Research advances in public health and health care has resulted in increased life expectancy leading to dramatic changes in the way chronic disease is prevented, detected or managed. Despite our success more needs to be done to further reduce the effects on our life.

Unlocking mental health

The Neural Health Project’s whole person approach provides keys to unlocking better mental health. The development of the project came from the need to make a difference in the lives of patients and their families touched by mental illness.

Using an Integrative Medical approach to mental illness, this method takes into account the whole person (body, mind, spirit and community), including all aspects of lifestyle.

Led by Drs. Anne Leis and Shirley (DeeDee) Maltman (MD’85), the project is a collaboration between members of the Centre for Integrative Medicine, the Department of Community Health and Epidemiology, and the Neuroscience Research Cluster. Read more...

An impact on community

Research Chairs play a vital role in enhancing the College of Medicine's research missions and improving health within our communities. We attract and retain exceptional researchers and clinicians to Saskatchewan through our chair positions.

 The College of Medicine Research Chairs aim to achieve research excellence in:

  • Neurosurgery
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Rural Dementia Care
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Indigenous Health

An impact in memory

In memoriam or “in memory” donations are a wonderful way to honour or remember a loved one who’s passed away, while making an important difference. Support research related to a cause close to you. If you have a specific area of giving in mind, but don't see it listed here, contact us. We will work with you to direct your gift to an area that supports research of your choice.

Every second counts...

Bruce and Chris Gordon

Bruce Gordon was a Saskatoon-based competitive athlete and police officer. He was an inspiration to many people through his sport and community activities. In his memory, the Gordon family has established a fund to support pancreatic cancer research, ancreatic cancer detection, and research for pancreatic cancer treatment at the College of Medicine. 

Through the local #BeLikeBruce Fitness Festival and triathlon, along with other local initiatives, more than $15,000 has been donated to pancreatic cancer research.
