Dr. James Day (MD) and Dr. Reg Clark (P Eng Chem at Queen’s University) began working on an allergen delivery system in 1981, an evolution based on this research collaboration for the investigation of the effects of urea formaldehyde foam insulation (UFFI) on the human respiratory system.
The KGHRI was established as the Kingston General Hospital Research Institute in September 2010 and became operational on April 1, 2011. The creation of the Kingston Health Sciences Centre on April 1, 2017, comprising the former KGH and HDH, resulted in the KGHRI changing its name to the Kingston General Health Research Institute.
KGHRI fulfilled a major goal with the opening of the W.J. Henderson Centre for Patient-Oriented Research. This 10,000-square-foot shared research space located on Connell 4 (KGH site), offers clinician and research scientists, allied health professionals, staff, students, and trainees access to state-of-the-art facilities for conducting inpatient and outpatient research in a single, in-hospital location.
The EEU Dust Mite Unit is a unique tool designed to reproduce real world levels of allergen for clinical studies. It allows for the replication of the environment in which symptoms will manifest themselves in volunteer participants. The participants-5 to 45 per session-are exposed to their suspected allergen in a controlled environment, where physicians and researchers detect and record their response to different medications and dose.
