State-of-the-art facilities, equipment and cutting-edge technologies at the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility (CHHM) foster a research environment with a focus on innovation. Our research strengths include bone and joint imaging for the early detection of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis; interventions that enhance bone health, cognitive function and mobility and prevent falls and fracture; bone and joint biomechanics and biomaterials engineering; population health and epidemiology, health economics, innovations to reduce infection and the overall burden of orthopaedic surgeries and molecular and cellular physiology of bone, muscle and tendon.
Robert H.N. Ho Research Centre
The seven-storey, 69,350 sq ft facility on the Vancouver General Hospital campus is named after one major donor, Robert H.N. Ho. CHHM research laboratories and offices are housed on the upper four floors of the new building. In addition, CHHM still maintains 12,500 sq ft of space within the VCHRI Research Pavilion, located one block east of the new facility.
