The Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF) supports research and its practical application in the field of neurotrauma. Neurotrauma is an injury to the spinal cord or brain. Our work benefits everyone with a personal or professional interest in neurotrauma.
ONF funds research to fill knowledge gaps in the areas of:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury (SCI)
- Injury prevention; specifically fall prevention across the lifespan
ONF connects people with the research knowledge they need to improve practices and policies. We guide organizations as they work to put research evidence into action.
ONF is a non-profit organization funded by the Government of Ontario.

The Health Science Information Consortium of Toronto (HSICT) was founded in 1990 out of a desire to strengthen the relationship between the University of Toronto Libraries and the libraries of health care institutions affiliated with the University's Faculty of Medicine.
While we continue to thrive and benefit through support from the University of Toronto, we have grown to include over 40 distinguished organizations including teaching and community hospitals, public health units, and other health care and educational institutions in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. HSICT members collaborate to provide specialized services and cost effective access to online health information resources to over 71,000 health care professionals, educators, researchers and students.
