MSFHR Connections | Celebrating our past and future

The Office of Research Services has received the following information which we are forwarding to our e-mail list members:

December 2016


Celebrating past successes and future opportunities

2016 was a milestone year for MSFHR. We celebrated 15 years of building health research capacity in BC and making a difference in the health research community and, ultimately, in the health of British Columbians.

We have many accomplishments to celebrate about and many things to look forward to in the coming year such as the launch of the final elements of our new suite of funding programs and strengthening our partnership with both the emerging BC Academic Health Science Network and the recently-funded BC SUPPORT Unit.

As December draws to a close and many of you take a well-deserved break, we would like to wish you all a wonderful holiday season spent with those who are dearest to you and all the best for the coming year.
