How PERFORM supports research

PERFORM supports the health research community through access to its facilities, research labs, experts, annual funding research calls, training and programming knowledge translation activities.

We also support our researchers through our annual research funding opportunities that support a wide variety of health research projects, focused on all aspects of health from mental health to physical well-being, diagnostics research, nutrition, sleep, pain and cognition.

Become a research participant

Our research would not be possible without the people who volunteer to take part in our research studies. Participants gain a useful understanding of how research takes place, and learn something interesting about the field, or themselves. Participation is open to the public.
