Vancouver, BC – Dr Darryl Knight, a researcher with the Providence Heart and Lung Institute at St Paul’s Hospital and the University of British Columbia, has been awarded a $300,000 grant from Johnson & Johnson.

This three-year grant will support his basic research into pediatric asthma.

“This generous funding of Dr Knight’s research by Johnson and Johnson is an excellent example of the type of high-level support that is being attracted by stellar investigators and their teams focused on cardiac and pulmonary diseases and conducted at the Providence Heart and Lung Institute at St Paul’s Hospital,” said Bruce McManus, who was recently named the inaugural director of the Institute.
