Donating to our research programs:
The surgeons at HULC provide complex surgical care to patients from the London area and from across Canada. In addition, as faculty members at The University of Western Ontario, they teach medical students, surgical residents and post-residency Clinical Fellows from all over the world. The HULC team conducts research in orthopedic tissue biomechanics and prosthetic implants, wound healing, cancer, infection, Dupuytren's contracture and reconstructive (micro)surgery. HULC also has an active clinical research program looking into the outcomes of our surgical procedures in an attempt at improving our treatment protocols.
Although the Ontario health care system generally provides prompt and modern medical services, there is a serious shortage of funding for research and education. Therefore, HULC has established a fund to receive donations for assistance with our research programs. Regular contributions to this fund are made by our staff and in the past many of our patients have generously supported this fund.
Currently, one of the main priorities of the HULC is to endow the Graham King Chair in the Hand and Upper Limb Centre. This Chair honors Dr. Graham King, who is one of the world's most prominent elbow surgeons and who, with Dr. James Johnson, has pioneered fundamental studies on the biomechanics of the elbow. You can find further information on their work on the website of the HULC Bio-Engineering Laboratory. Support for this cause with a gift of any amount would be greatly appreciated by all of us here at HULC.
Donations can be made through the secure servers at the University of Western Ontario. If you wish to donate on-line, click here.

Your contribution is deductible for income tax purposes and a tax receipt will be mailed to you by the University of Western Ontario.
