Improving patient care through research.
A fundamental aspect of VCH Research is its focus on translational health research - improving patient care by uniting multidisciplinary teams that move research discoveries from the laboratory bench to the patients' bedside. The Mentored and Established Clinician Scientist Awards are one avenue to achieve this goal.
This annual funding program is supported by the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. Awards are granted to individuals who are up-and-coming in clinical practice, who also demonstrate promise in related areas of translational health research at VGH, UBC Hospital or GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre. Support through these awards provides clinicians with protected time, allowing them to focus on advancing their research careers. This year's grant recipients are as follows:
Dr. Macadam's research is funded through the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation's Best of Health Fund.
Dr. Black's research is funded through the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundatiion's Best of Health Fund.
