Heart disease. Cancer. Stroke. MS. Diabetes. ALS. Alzheimer’s disease. Spinal cord injury. Epilepsy.
At some point in your life you or someone you love will almost certainly be affected by one, or more than one, of these debilitating diseases.
At Robarts Research Institute at Western University, we’ve made it our mission to accelerate medical discovery. Right now, our gifted scientists are conducting basic and clinical research that will have an impact on many of today’s most devastating diseases– and they need your support to keep that momentum.
Recent medical breakthroughs at Robarts – including the identification of disease-causing genetic mutations, new drug treatments for heart disease patients, and improved cancer therapies – hold the promise of saving thousands of lives.
Someday, one of those lives could be yours, or that of someone close to you.
Robarts scientists are leaders in the fields of neuroscience, imaging and genomics, and are world-renowned for their extraordinary knowledge and talent. Some of those vital discoveries include a more successful treatment for high blood pressure, an improved technique that will allow for earlier and more definitive diagnoses of Alzheimer’s disease, and a better understanding of the regenerative processes of stem cells so that they might one day be used to repair or re-grow damaged tissue caused by heart attacks or spinal cord injuries.
This remarkable science is driven by a common philosophy: to bring medical discoveries and new technologies faster to clinical trial, faster to market, and, ultimately, faster to you.
But such advances in medical research don’t happen by themselves. Your support is vitally important to research at Robarts. Please make your gift today.
