WCHRI offers many mechanisms to catalyze and facilitate women and children’s health research through a wide range of programs, partnerships and funding opportunities.
WCHRI is continually developing new initiatives based on input from our members and stakeholders to catalyze research and improve health outcomes. Our current initiatives include:
- Recruitment supports departments and faculties in recruiting the best researchers to the University of Alberta.
- Partnership Resources include networking, leveraging and financial support with our many partners locally, provincially and nationally.
- Partnership Program provides an opportunity for our members to leverage WCHRI funds as matching with other internal/external grants.
- Mentoring and Educational Opportunities help to grow capacity and expertise among our trainees and junior faculty.
- Research Capacity Building Program provides opportunities to develop hospital-based clinical research platforms.
All researchers and/or partners who receive funding must properly acknowledge WCHRI and the support of the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation and/or the Lois Hole Hospital for Women in their research and public publications, websites, presentations, posters and reports.
