MSFHR Research Impact, 2001-2013
With the generous support of a large cohort of past and current scholars, MSFHR analyzed CV data from 79 percent of individuals funded since 2001.
Highlights of this analysis are available in a new infographic that demonstrates the exceptional nature of the individuals and work supported by MSFHR funding.
Among the key findings:
- 94% of MSFHR-funded scholars remain in BC as health research leaders
- More than $1.1 billion in additional health research funding has been attracted to BC by scholar award recipients - more than 10 times MSFHR's investment of $117M
- MSFHR-funded scholars exceed BC and Canadian quality benchmarks for impact factor and number of citations
- 55% of MSFHR-funded scholars have achieved the level of full professor within five years of completing their scholar award
Supplementing this analysis of scholar awards, a companion document provides a visual overview of the full scope of MSFHR funding programs, including trainee awards, infrastructure projects, and government priorities.
