Education and Training

The Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research is dedicated to supporting aspiring investigators and future scientists. Within each program of the Centre, students and fellows not only receive hands-on experience in a multitude of research projects, but fill an important role in driving our mission.

The Centre is also committed to funding novel ideas from emerging researchers. In place is an Education Fund that supports advanced projects that relate to heart failure and which demonstrate collaborations between the three partners: SickKids, University Health Network and the University of Toronto.
