The KITE Research Institute - a world-leading research arm at Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, is dedicated to studying people and their environments to help prevent injuries, restore function, and enhance participation and independent living. Researchers are actively engaged in developing new treatments, devices, and products as well as gathering evidence that guides changes to policy and public opinion. This research is dedicated to improving the lives of people living with the effects of disability, illness and aging.
Philanthropy plays a vital role in bolstering the infrastructure that Toronto Rehab requires to turn the ideas of our clinicians and scientists into home, community, and hospital-based advancements and innovations. Donors contribute to the physical equipment and facility requirements of our researchers while also helping fund their research studies and leverage further granting opportunities. Fellowships and Scholarships established through private support allow Toronto Rehab to attract and retain internationally recognized clinician-scientists and nurture the next generation of research leaders.
