University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international
source for discovery, education and patient care.
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community
and help others. At UHN, we welcome your contribution and offer different ways you can help so you can find one that suits you.

The Clinical Biochemistry division provides high-volume routine diagnostic and specialized esoteric testing to health care providers at UHN and serves as a reference laboratory provincially and nationally.
We perform approximately 10 million tests per year and use technologies and outreach efforts to build capacity, provide training and offer support to other institutions. In addition, we provide testing to research contracting agencies and principal investigators worldwide.
Clinical biochemistry tests are performed at the UHN core laboratories (located at TGH, TWH and PMH), which are equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation capable of performing thousands of tests per hour.
Clinical biochemistry staff are involved in leading-edge research in the areas of tumour markers, cardiac markers, endocrinology, transplantation, immunology and point-of-care testing. New laboratory-developed tests and platforms are routinely introduced to further both research and clinical trials. The Division supports and encourages training and continuing education.
