Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.

CIHR funding announcement
Results of the third round of the CIHR Foundation Grant Program were announced this week. This program was designed to provide long-term funding for exceptional new and established health research leaders in their pursuit of innovative and high-impact research programs. I'm proud to share that UHN researchers received eight of the 76 grants awarded across Canada, with a success rate nearly double the national average (UHN 24 per cent; national average 13 per cent). With this announcement of eight new awards, UHN now holds a total of 23 Foundation Grants.
Please join me in congratulating our UHN recipients from the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre (Drs. Cheryl Arrowsmith, John Dick, Mitsu Ikura, Rama Khokha, Aaron Schimmer, and Gang Zheng), the Krembil Institute (Dr. Robert Chen) and Toronto General Hospital Research Institute (Dr. Myron Cybulsky). Thanks also to the RSS (Research Solutions and Services) teams who assisted with these applications.
