McMaster University is receiving $8.45 million from the federal government to support 13 health research projects.
The results of the 2018 fall Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) project grants competition were shared at an announcement at the Health Sciences Centre today. The McMaster grants are part of a national investment of $275 million funds for Canadian researchers studying the full spectrum of health issues.
"Congratulations to the McMaster University researchers receiving funding today," said Filomena Tassi, Minister of Seniors and Member of Parliament for Hamilton West-Ancaster-Dundas.
"These grants are a testament to the high calibre of health science taking place in Hamilton. I am especially gratified to see support for so many research projects focused on improving the health and quality of life of Canada's seniors."
Today's announcement featured two McMaster recipients, Hsien Seow (Oncology) and Sharon Kaasalainen (Nursing), who talked about their respective projects related to palliative care.
