On April 2nd, the Honourable Dr. Jane Philpott (Minister of Health) and Dr. Alain Beaudet (President, CIHR) announced the awards given to McMaster/HHS researchers:  Drs. Norm Buckley (Pain Network), Paul Moayyedi (IMAGINE Network) through CIHR’s Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) Initiative. In addition, they announced the funding of another network lead by McGill (Dr. A. Majnemer for CHILD-BRIGHT) with Dr. Jan Willem Gorter (Hamilton’s CanChild) as co-lead.

CIHR funded five pan-Canadian SPOR networks. The breakdown of those networks is as follows: one network based at UBC, one at U of T, one at McGill and two at McMaster. We applaud Hamilton researchers’ success in receiving funding for two networks and co-leading a third network.
