    A better way to monitor grants, collect outcomes, and measure and communicate the impact of Health Research BC awardees

About Us

We are Michael Smith Health Research BC. By joining forces with the the British Columbia Academic Health Science Network (BC AHSN), we have created a new dynamic and integrated health research organization that will support the growth and evolution of BC’s vibrant health research system and life sciences sector.

To celebrate our 20th anniversary, we took a look back and caught up with 20 researchers we’ve funded since 2001 to see how their work helped transform health research and care in BC.
