> MSFHR Scholar Impact (PDF)

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.
