2008 Team Grant Winners

The purpose of the Team Grants competition is to fund practice-based research projects across Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) that have direct and immediate relevance to improving patient/client care, diagnosis, treatment or disease prevention. This competition is open to VCH staff and physicians who have collaborated with an experienced researcher. VCHRI has partnered with the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation and the North Shore Health Research Foundation (NSHRF) to fund this competition.
