Update on new and revised funding programs

As part of MSFHR's review of our funding programs and in support of our overall strategic goals, MSFHR staff travelled across BC between May and July of 2016 to engage with a broad cross section of researchers, health professionals, and administrators. Our aim was to better understand how our funding programs can meet the needs of BC's health research community.

The consultation feedback provided valuable insights on the proposed changes to existing salary support awards and helped shape the design of a refreshed suite of funding programs.

We're pleased to be launching a new funding program and a revised MSFHR Research Trainee Award competition in early 2017.
