Investing in health research excellence
Through our funding programs, we invest in BC’s top minds and support them to answer the questions that keep British Columbians healthy and improve our health system.
Since 2001, we’ve funded nearly 1,500 researchers and more than 60 research teams. MSFHR awards provide vital support to established scholars and up-and-coming investigators, enabling them to focus on research, collaborate, train and mentor students, and disseminate their findings. Our award recipients are active in all corners of the province pursuing important research questions across a broad spectrum of health disciplines.
In addition to supporting individual researchers and teams, MSFHR awards also facilitate:
- Practice-relevant nursing research
- Evaluation of health system change
- Streamlining research ethics review
- Platforms for sharing research resources
