Eighteen 2019 Convening & Collaborating (C2) awards and eight 2019 Reach awards have been awarded to teams across BC. These awards are designed to foster collaboration between researchers and research users, support the co-development of research questions and the dissemination of research evidence.

Nine BC health researchers have been funded in MSFHR’s third Innovation to Commercialization (I2C) competition. Each will receive funding to advance their medical treatments, diagnostic tools and assistive technologies towards practical application to improve health outcomes and enrich the health innovation ecosystem in BC.

Eleven clinicians have been awarded funding in MSFHR's 2019 Health Professional-Investigator (HP-I) competition to conduct research and apply evidence within BC's health system to improve patient care.

Valerie To, director, Research Competitions discusses the evolution of our grant application processes from the early days of paper to today's system and beyond.
