Research and Analytics

ICES offers research opportunities across various fields from health system performance to chronic disease. By integrating data from multiple sources, ICES researchers gain a holistic understanding of population health and healthcare delivery.

Our People

ICES has close to 300 scientists, many of whom have achieved international recognition in their fields. A number of ICES scientists are practicing physicians who understand the everyday challenges of healthcare delivery; others are methodologists and statisticians whose expertise in analytical methods help drive leading-edge investigations that have global impact.

ICES Scientists

Our Work

ICES Research and Analytics 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.

ICES’ wide-ranging research is organized into eight major programs. These programs support province-wide research collaboration and networking, as well as strategy development and resource planning.

Awards & Grants

ICES brings together the best and brightest scientific talent. Many ICES scientists have received national and international awards for their work and have successful track records of gaining peer-reviewed research grants.

Conflict of Interest

ICES is a publicly funded, not-for-profit research and analytic institute that produces trusted evidence. ICES must ensure it maintains public trust and lives up to its mission and values. To do so, we maintain a robust policy framework to effectively manage actual, perceived or potential conflicts of interest.

Research Rounds

Research rounds are held at ICES Central and virtually at noon on Thursdays from September to June. ICES scientists, 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 the Sunnybrook YouTube channel on a weekly basis.
