Techna is a new institute at UHN, in collaboration with the University of Toronto, devoted to the advancement of health technologies. Our mission is twofold: to shorten the time interval from technology discovery and development to application of such technologies for the benefit of patients and the health care system, and to facilitate the convergence of basic investigation, technology development and translational research. Techna represents a paradigm shift towards demand-driven activities and the organizational alignment of the needs of the research hospital and the research enterprise.
