Edmonton, AB – The Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research has awarded $39 million in funding to 41 health researchers across the province. Each of the seven-year awards is worth around $1 million, making them among the richest health research awards in Canada.
“My congratulations go out to all of the exceptional researchers who are offered awards this year,” says AHFMR Interim President and CEO Jacques Magnan, PhD. “AHFMR awards are difficult to obtain due to our extremely demanding peer review systems, which ensure our researchers are internationally competitive. Garnering AHFMR support is truly something to be proud of.”
