The Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences is home to researchers who investigate health, longevity and disease using interdisciplinary methodologies, approaches and perspectives. Research areas of interest include integrative health biosciences, population health and health technologies.
Integrative Health Biosciences
Supported by new laboratory infrastructure at the Roger Guindon Pavillion campus, ISHS researchers conduct investigations into environmental, developmental, and aging-related modulations of (patho) physiological processes that define life trajectory. Major areas of research include mitochondrial medicine, environmental toxicology, cardiovascular genetics, neuroscience and reproductive health. Our biosciences professors bring their research excellence to the undergraduate and graduate classrooms, enabling students to appreciate design, experimental processes, methodological and technological innovations association with integrative health biosciences research.

Population Health - Social Health Sciences
ISHS researcher study many aspects of population health including experiences of illness, chronic disease interventions, aging and longevity, quality of life, reproductive health and community health. As the administrative home to the Population Health PhD program, our researchers recognize the determinants of health, develop strategies to prevent illness, promote health and wellbeing and measure health inequities, both in Canada and globally.
