Dr. Angela Colantonio and the ABI Research Lab members, 2015.

The Acquired Brain Injury Research Lab is led by Dr. Angela Colantonio, PhD, OT. The research goal of the program is to improve the quality of life of people with acquired brain injury. The program is structured along the following key research foci:

  1. Population based studies, like the Ontario ABI Dataset Project include research on interventions for vulnerable populations and data on brain injury in Local Health Integration Networks within the province of Ontario.

    The 2011/2012 LHIN data reports for the Ontario ABI Dataset Project are available for download from our website. The complete set can be found here.

  2. Girls & women with ABI;
  3. TBI in vulnerable populations, including elderly, forensic, and homeless populations; and
  4. Work-related TBI; and
  5. Research based theatre.

The research program is built on partnerships with stakeholders including advocacy groups, funders, and students. This research program has been generously supported by the Saunderson Family Chair in Acquired Brain Injury Research at Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, UHN since its establishment in 2003 and a CIHR Chair in Gender, Work, and Health.
