Techna is a new institute at UHN, in collaboration with the University of Toronto, devoted to the advancement of health technologies. Our mission is twofold: to shorten the time interval from technology discovery and development to application of such technologies for the benefit of patients and the health care system, and to facilitate the convergence of basic investigation, technology development and translational research. Techna represents a paradigm shift towards demand-driven activities and the organizational alignment of the needs of the research hospital and the research enterprise.

* Note: Data are accurate as of September 1, 2015. Metrics are calculated by considering data on all Researchers, which includes CCRU Investigators or Clinical Researchers as applicable. CCRU Investigators and Clinical Researchers are not formally appointed at the research institutes and are therefore not subject to the research institutes' scientific and performance reviews. Clinical Researchers are defined as UHN staff that are listed as principal or corresponding author on at least one publication in the 2014 calendar year, and/or held research funding over the 2014-2015 fiscal year, and/or are registered as lead investigator on an active research project through the CAPCR system between September 1, 2014 and September 1, 2015. Trainee counts reflect only those trainees supervised by researchers with a primary appointment at a research institute.
