One of the many ways in which Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute (VCHRI) fulfills its mandate to support and promote excellence in health research is through its annual Investigator Awards competition. The peer-reviewed salary support awards allow investigators at Vancouver General Hospital (VGH), UBC Hospital, and G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre to reduce their clinical practice commitments and build their research capacity to expand the possibilities of bringing knowledge from bench to bedside.
The 2016 VCHRI Investigator Award recipients are:
- Dr. David Schaeffer, Assistant Professor, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, UBC; Consultant Pathologist, Pancreas Centre BC
- Dr. Mypinder Sekhon, Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine, Division of Critical Care Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, UBC; Staff Intensivist, VGH Intensive Care Unit
- Dr. Marie Westby, Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Physical Therapy, Faculty of Medicine, University of British Columbia (UBC); Associate Research Member, Centre for Hip Health and Mobility; Physical Therapy Teaching Supervisor, Department of Physical Therapy, Mary Pack Arthritis Program
Congratulations Dr. Schaeffer!
