Lung Sask/SHRF

Lung Sask is pleased to be a partner with the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF) on its Solutions Program.

The Solutions program aims to mobilize the research ecosystem to focus and coordinate diverse skills and perspectives to address timely Saskatchewan health challenges. All applications must address one or more of the health challenges (i.e. focus area) identified for the competition year.

For each competition year, the Solutions program offers a selection of funding opportunities to support research at various stages within the funding focus area, including partnered investments.

Information about the 2022-2023 competition year will be shared soon. Watch this space for details!


In addition to the Solutions program, the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF) has a number of funding opportunities that foster collaboration, innovation, and impact for the health of Saskatchewan people.

Whether it be to support and facilitate the sharing of health research knowledge, support early-career researchers, or support transdisciplinary teams to advance the translation of research into real world settings, SHRF grants continue to strengthen research capacity in Saskatchewan

Respiratory Research Centre

The University of Saskatchewan's (UofS) Respiratory Research Centre (RRC) has a mission is to:

  • build knowledge and understanding of respiratory health and well-being across the life span and within at-risk groups, using patient/person, family, population-health, and ‘One Health’ focused approaches;
  • enable and undertake interdisciplinary and intersectoral research in the respiratory field addressing chronic respiratory conditions, including their prevention;
  • develop and evaluate innovative approaches to health care design and delivery for persons with respiratory illness and disease that also optimize health and well-being, are attentive to healthcare system expenditure and value, support quality improvement, and acknowledge public and professional educational needs and perspectives; and
  • ensure meaningful application of research findings using an integrated knowledge translation approach, utilizing and coordinating the activities of the RRC with UofS students and faculty, other universities/institutions, government, private industry, health regions and care delivery systems, the Saskatchewan Health Quality Council, First Nations, national and international professional societies, and others.
