Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute (VCHRI) offers internal awards and funding competitions for individual investigators and research teams that foster continuity in their work and bring discovery from bench to bedside.
Each year VCHRI provides approximately $1.8M in funding for salary- and project-based awards, annually supporting our investigators, clinicians, students and research teams from a variety of health disciplines.
VCHRI is proud to offer its award program in partnership with Providence Health Care Research Institute, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, Richmond Hospital Foundation, Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, Transplant Research Foundation of BC and the BC SUPPORT Unit.
VCHRI is committed to equity and welcomes the participation of all eligible individuals in our award programs. We acknowledge that our capacity to expedite the integration of new findings, technologies and treatments into the health care system depends on a diverse range of skills, expertise, background and experiences. We prioritize creating a safe, inclusive and inviting atmosphere for the VCH/UBC research community.
