The Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR) harnesses the power of health research for the benefit of all British Columbians. The Foundation supports a vibrant community of researchers that is active across BC developing new treatments and cures, responding to emerging health issues, and improving the delivery of health care.

MSFHR Trainee Awards support highly qualified applicants at the post-PhD and post-health professional degree (MD, DDS, DVM or DPharm) stages to prepare for careers as independent health researchers. While training on the job, these exceptional students significantly increase the productivity of the research programs with which they are affiliated. MSFHR Trainee Awards build on Dr. Michael Smith’s legacy of support for up-and-coming scientists and help launch independent research careers.
