By linking data from many sources, ICES researchers can obtain a comprehensive view of population health and health care delivery. Research opportunities span a wide range of topics and disciplines, including health system performance, drug safety and effectiveness, mental health and addictions services, organ donation and transplantation, and complex chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular and respiratory diseases.
ICES has over 200 scientists, many of whom have achieved international recognition in their area of focus. A number of ICES scientists are practicing physicians who understand the everyday challenges of health care delivery; others are methodologists and statisticians whose expertise in analytical methods helps drive leading-edge investigations that have global impact.
ICES research is highly regarded in Canada and abroad and is widely used by governments, hospitals, planners and practitioners to make decisions about care delivery and to develop policy. Our unbiased, evidence-based findings and recommendations are profiled in atlases, investigative reports and peer-reviewed journals. They are used to guide decision-making and inform changes in health care delivery.
ICES' wide-ranging research is organized into seven major programs. These programs support province-wide research collaboration and networking, as well as strategy development and resource planning.
ICES brings together the best and brightest scientific talent. Many of our scientists are internationally recognized in their fields and have received national and international awards and recognition for their important work.
Conflicts of Interest
ICES is a publicly funded, not-for-profit research institute that produces trusted research evidence that makes policy better, health care stronger, and people healthier. ICES must ensure it maintains public trust and live up to ICES’ values, which include excellence and integrity. To do so, we maintain a robust policy framework to effectively manage actual, perceived or potential conflicts of interests.

Research rounds are held at ICES at noon on Tuesdays from September to June. ICES scientists and trainees and visiting speakers present the results of ongoing or recently completed studies in health services research or clinical epidemiology. The one-hour presentations are video-recorded and posted on this website on a weekly basis.
