Rotman Research Institute
  • Toronto

The Rotman Research Institute is a premier international centre for the study of human brain function, with a special focus on aging and the brain. Founded in 1989, the RRI's scientists, staff, and trainees have supported Baycrest in becoming Canada's #1 most research-intensive hospital, with scientific foci in four primary areas consistent with its home on the campus of Baycrest Seniors Care: sensory and cognitive neuroscience, computational neuroscience and neuroinformatics, aging and brain health, and Alzheimer's and related dementias. The RRI has significant research infrastructure for neuroimaging (one of the only research facilities in Canada to have MRI, MEG, and EEG all within one building), neurostimulation, psychophysics, and behavioural testing, including Institute-based and mobile-testing laboratories. The RRI is also the scientific headquarters for the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA), Canada's largest single investment in dementia research, comprising a national network of over 350 dementia researchers and clinicians. The RRI is fully affiliated with the University of Toronto, and houses several other research centres and programs as well, including the Kunin-Lunenfeld Centre for Applied Research and Evaluation, the Anne and Allan Bank Centre for Clinical Research Trials, the Kimel Family Centre for Brain Health and Wellness, the RRI Research Training Centre, and the Ben and Hilda Katz Inter-Professional Research Program in Geriatric and Dementia Care.
