WHAT IS THE RESEARCH INNOVATION COUNCIL?

The Research Innovation Council (RIC) is a group of visionary business and community leaders who see the value and potential of medical research to advance health care, and want to jumpstart the next big medical breakthrough especially in areas traditionally overlooked by funding agencies. There's no better place to put that support than at St. Michael's Hospital and Providence Healthcare, a global powerhouse in medical research, education and patient care.

RIC is a donor experience unlike any other. When you join RIC, you become part of a group that gets an insider's view on research.
