    • FATHER SEAN O’SULLIVAN RESEARCH CENTRE Annual Report 2003 - 2004
    • OUR HERITAGE
      • “ The wonders of modern medicine have been surpassed only by the tremendous human kindness of such dedicated doctors, nurses, their co-workers and those countless individuals whose prayers and concern have touched my heart”. Father Sean O’Sullivan
    • THIS REPORT “Young Investigators”
      • 1.      Our Report Card to You
        • Use of Foundation Funds
        • Research Outputs
        • Financial Indicators
      • 2. Our Young Scientists and how they help patients
    • “ Peer Reviewed”
      • This term typically means one of two things; either your research was chosen for publication or your research proposal was chosen for funding and the decision was made by a group of your scientific peers - a panel of independent experts.
      • For a scientist, peer reviewed funding or publication is very prestigious.
    • Kidney & Urinary Researchers
      • Christian Rabbat is investigating the risk of bleeding in haemodialysis patients and how we can minimize it.
      Note: St. Joseph's Healthcare has 500 patients in dialysis. Joan Krepinsky studies cell signaling and the mechanisms of progression of chronic kidney disease. Catherine Clase looks at factors that lead to cardiovascular disease in dialysis patients, and therapies that will prevent vascular and thrombotic complications. Peter Margetts is investigating fibrosis and angiogenesis in the peritoneum, using molecular biology to determine their role in kidney disease .

      Martin Kolb is studying the pathogenesis of chronic inflammation and fibrosis in the lung . Renee Labiris , is a Pulmonary Pharmacologist investigating the delivery to the lung of therapeutic aerosols.
    • Publications in Past 5 Years Summari z ed by Program
    • Clinical Researchers
      • Mark Crowther , MD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine. His research interest is focused on management of patients with antiphospholipid antibodies, including patients with recurrent pregnancy loss, and on studies designed to optimize oral anticoagulant therapy.
    • Current “Snapshot” Students and Trainees Summarized by Program
    • Mental Health/BBI Researchers
      • Michael Noseworthy is a n imaging scientist (MRI), his research interests focus on microcirculation and in MR spectroscopy.
      Geoffrey Hall ’s main research focus is the application of neuro-imaging (PET and MRI) to mental health disorders such as depression, autism and social phobia. Jane Foster ’s main area of research interest is psycho-neuroimmunology. Her laboratory uses genetic, pharmacological, biochemical, neuroanatomical, and molecular biological approaches to investigate psychiatric disorders such as depression.
    • CHALLENGES FOR SCIENTISTS
      • Shift from “curiosity” to “contractualized research”
      • More “strings” attached to funding
      • Less flexibility in use of funds
      • More legislative requirements (e.g. ethics and privacy)
      • Scientists spend more of their time getting the fund for their salaries and research – less time for research
      • Shift from academic to business model
      • Expectation of economic benefit for Canada
    • Why is the Foundation so Critical to Research at SJHH
      • Peer Review (supports science)
      • Usually a foundation or government funded agency. Use panels of scientists to carefully select projects to be funded based on scientific merit.
      • Government (supports government policy goals)
      • Provide research funding to projects that support government policies.
      • Industry (supports profits)
      • Provide funding to support research that will:
      • - lead to new commercial discoveries/technologies
      • - support government approval of products
    • Where Our Funding Comes From Total Funding $ 20,261,388 2003 – 2004 (Based on Cash Deposits)
    • WHY FOUNDATION?
      • As the only truly “flexible” SJHH source of funding aligned with our Mission for our community you:
      • Create a synergy with McMaster University
      • Support research enterprise and unleash the research capacity of our clinicians and scientists
      • Leverage $20 million plus capital for research
      • Create career building blocks for Canadian talent
      • Attract research talent to our community
      • Create superb programs and high quality jobs
    • CE/Health Services Researchers
