We discover and translate innovative solutions for heart, lung, and critical care diseases

Message from the Director

The Centre for Heart Lung Innovation (HLI), previously known as iCAPTURE and the James Hogg Research Centre, was established as the Pulmonary Research Laboratory in 1977 by Drs. James Hogg (2013 Gairdner Wightman Award Winner) and Peter Paré. Since then it has grown dramatically in scope, size, and worldwide impact. Basic and clinician scientists work together in an exciting multidisciplinary environment to address vital issues in heart, lung, and critical care disease. The HLI is the largest translational research centre within Providence Health Care’s St. Paul’s Hospital, a University of British Columbia teaching hospital. It is a translational research centre using basic molecular and cellular research discoveries to develop innovative approaches to prevent and treat human disease through our complementary and connected clinical research.

Strategic Plan 2022-2027

HLI’s Strategic Plan 2022-2027 was developed in collaboration with Providence Research, UBC Faculty of Medicine, Providence Health Care and Simon Fraser University Faculty of Health Sciences. Over the next few years, our vision is to discover solutions to improve the heart and lung health of peoples of British Columbia, Canada and throughout the world. To accomplish this, we will attract, support, and connect world class researchers to discover patient-centred therapeutic and biomarker solutions to improve cardiovascular and respiratory health by focusing on three core areas: research, education, and knowledge mobilization.

Partnerships and Governance.
