Connecting Care & Community

Aurora Research Institute carries out patient-centered research with the goal of improving the health and quality of life of the people we care for at Aurora Health Care.

Doctors and researchers search for innovative treatments for diseases and medical conditions in our laboratories and clinics. We provide access to new drugs, procedures and treatments through participation in clinical trials.

And we collaborate with others on population research programs that improve the health and quality of life of people in the communities where they live.


Original Research & Programs Where You Live

Your health involves more than access to health care. Your economic situation, your occupation, where you live, your social environment and your community can all contribute to your health.

These factors also make a difference in the way you respond to illness or medical treatments and how you recover.

Aurora supports initiatives to research factors that affect health in your neighborhood. We do this by:

  • Supporting research in our communities
  • Connecting community members and organizations with our researchers and doctors
  • Sponsoring health-related projects run by Aurora doctors, doctors-in-training or researchers in the community
