The International Centre for Translational Digital Health

The International Centre for Translational Digital Health is a joint collaboration between the University of Toronto, the University of Manchester and the University of Melbourne. The mission of the Centre is to advance the field of Digital Health in Canada, the UK, and Australia through the development, implementation, and translation of new technologies, policies, and service delivery models. The Centre brings together experts from a broad range of disciplines from each institution to share and develop knowledge, engage in collaborative activity, and leverage each other’s distinct national research environments. Its impact is the creation and commercialization of new technologies, the translation of theory into more effective public policy, and the strengthening of health services delivery.

The Centre offers numerous opportunities to support and promote members, create collaborations, and provide value to industry partners:

-Joint Canada-UK-Australia research projects

-Funding opportunities

-Researcher and industry network exchange

-Lectures, workshops, and symposia

Accepting Students

We are building a joint PhD program but it isn’t launched yet. We might be seeking students to help with the Centre but again it hasn’t been fleshed out yet.
