Pioneering research and clinical care for disorders and diseases of the brain and spine

The Krembil Brain Institute at Toronto Western Hospital (UHN) is home to one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive teams of physicians and scientists uniquely working hand-in-hand to prevent and confront problems of the brain and spine. One in three Canadians will experience a brain-related condition such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Stroke or Concussion, in their lifetime. Through state-of-the-art patient care and advanced research, we are working relentlessly toward finding new treatments and cures.
