SHRF Solutions Program Invests Over $1M in Health Research

The Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF), a tenant at Innovation Place in Saskatoon, invested over $1 million in grants to support research teams developing virtual care approaches to health challenges facing the province.

The grants are part of SHRF’s new Solutions Program that aims to mobilize the research community to focus and coordinate its diverse skills and perspectives to address timely Saskatchewan health challenges.

The grants were awarded in two categories -- Impact and Innovation -- and two Innovation grants were awarded in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan.

SHRF is the provincial funding agency that funds, supports and promotes the impact of health research that matters to Saskatchewan.
