Why choose uOttawa?

This is uOttawa

With close to a hundred universities in Canada to choose from, here’s what makes uOttawa different.
Dr. Sharon Johnston and Dr. Jason Berman
Advanced Medical Research Centre

The University of Ottawa’s new Advanced Medical Research Centre will accelerate discovery and new treatments

The rapid development and deployment of vaccines during the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the critical role of research in creating lifesaving medical innovations. And aligning research with patient needs is exactly what uOttawa pediatrics professor Dr. Jason Berman aims to do in his own practice.

Built on the site of uOttawa’s Faculty of Medicine and adjacent to local hospitals, the AMRC will be a seven-story building that will promote collaborative research between some of the world’s top scientists and clinicians caring for patients in our public health system. It is uOttawa’s largest-ever investment and responds to a longstanding shortage of lab space needed to enhance the medical care that every family relies on.
