On March 11, 2019, BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute hosted the Canadian Institutes of Health Research for the announcement of $1.7-million in funding for early career investigators conducting high impact research in maternal, reproductive, child and youth health.

Scientists at the University of British Columbia and BC Children’s Hospital are the first in Canada to use a new test for pediatric tumour analysis that may one day guide personalized treatments for children with cancer.
We believe there’s nothing we can’t do with your support. It can take years to turn scientific breakthrough into new interventions and treatments. Funding helps speed the pace of change. When given the resources, we can bring transformative therapies – and hope – out of the laboratory and into the clinic to save and improve children’s lives.
