Opened in 1986, Robarts Research Institute at Western University is a medical research facility in London, Ontario, with more than 600 people working to investigate some of the most debilitating diseases of our time, from heart disease and stroke to diabetes, Alzheimer’s and many forms of cancer.

We believe we’ve got a winning formula to accelerate medical discovery: attract the brightest and best people, give them the freedom to think big and set the bar high.

From our roots under the scientific leadership of renowned neurologist Dr. Henry Barnett - whose work with Aspirin as a preventive therapy for heart attack and stroke remains one of the most important developments in 20th century medicine - the Institute has applied that formula to become a national leader in biological, clinical and imaging research.
