Research labs

The Faculty of Applied Health Sciences aims to provide students and researchers with state-of-the-art facilities and student spaces.

We are progressive, modern and innovative.

We believe the research being conducted in our labs is relevant to you, the Niagara community and the world.

We want to have a positive impact on people’s lives which is why our researchers are dedicated to improving health across the lifespan.

Whether looking at tropical diseases, risk factors of children and youth, improving senior’s fitness or understanding how physical activity and recreation can improve our well-being, our research is innovative and cutting-edge.

Our dedicated research labs, include:

  • four behavioural/observation labs
  • seven ‘dry’ biophysical labs
  • five ‘wet’ biophysical labs, and
  • two ergonomics labs.

The research we conduct in areas like cancer, infectious diseases, bone and muscle health, environmental ergonomics, human sexuality, and more, is world-renowned.

The Roy and Lois Cairns Health and Bioscience Research Complex is advancing Canada’s science and technology infrastructure. It houses world-class work by researchers in areas like cancer, infectious diseases, and bone and muscle health. It is a hub for innovative research and knowledge transfer
