The University of Waterloo is committed to leading globally and nationally at the interface of society, health and technology. Recognized as an international leader in the development of innovative health technologies that deliver care in ways that are portable, low cost and reach under-served communities, our researchers and entrepreneurs excel in advancing human-centred technology solutions. 

In creating a globally recognized hub for innovative and transformative health technologies, we have partnered with the private sector, the public sector, not-for-profit organizations, academic institutions and community groups.

Together, we tackle Canadian and global health challenges with breakthrough solutions that will decrease health care costs, increase accessibility to care for marginalized and under-served populations, improve the overall quality of care, integrate into existing health systems and offer people more precise and personalized services. 

Our greatest impact happens together.
