We're Investing $1 Million in Respiratory Research!
When you can’t breathe, nothing else matters. That’s why two of Saskatchewan’s leading health research funding organizations are looking to the future with a long-term investment of $1 million over five years.
Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF) and Lung Sask have built a strong relationship over the years with a common objective of supporting health research in Saskatchewan.
This new investment will be dedicated to furthering health research in the areas of Indigenous peoples’ lung health, cannabis and impact on lung health, and patient and caregiver education.
2021-2022 Competition Now Open - Solutions Program - Addictions Focus
SHRF is pleased to launch the first of its new programs, developed in response to engagement with the research community, partners, and other stakeholders and in line with SHRF's strategic plan and Board direction. This new program, called the Solutions Program, will be a peer-reviewed, competitive funding program to support direct research costs for interdisciplinary teams, including knowledge users conducting projects with measurable impact in focused areas.
The Solutions Program - Addictions focus is looking for teams to identify innovative and impactful approaches to address the entire addictions trajectory – from prevention and screening, to harm reduction, treatment and recovery. Working together, including those with lived/living experiences, is a way to help ensure strategies are effective, and services provide the necessary supports.
As a partner funder of the Solutions Program, Lung Sask is inviting applications through this program that focus on Indigenous peoples’ lung health, lung health, and patient and caregiver education.
