The BC COVID-19 Strategic Research Advisory Committee (SRAC) has just published the first iteration of the BC COVID-19 Strategic Research Framework to support a coordinated BC health research approach to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The MSFHR COVID-19 Research Response Fund, with $2 million in funding support from the BC government, will focus on high-quality research that evaluates BC’s response to the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and informs ongoing response, especially strategies for avoiding or mitigating subsequent waves of transmission. 

MSFHR is shifting several of its competition deadlines and hosting peer review meetings virtually in response to COVID-19. 

We are taking proactive measures in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation. Read on for more.

MSFHR is supporting two teams of BCCDC researchers who will track the transmission of COVID-19 in BC and study the susceptibility of British Columbians to the virus.

Internationally recognized pediatric cancer researcher Dr. Poul Sorensen has been named the eleventh recipient of MSFHR’s Aubrey J. Tingle Prize.
