This release is available in French.

Ottawa (May 7, 2008) The Honourable Tony Clement, Minister of Health announced today funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) for 764 health research projects across Canada, totalling over $298 million. Minister Clement was joined by Dr. Patrick McGrath, a member of CIHRs Governing Council, Dr. Po-Yin Cheung, a neonatologist and CIHR-funded researcher from the University of Alberta, and Luis and Oksana Delgado from Edmonton, whose 22 month old son Adrian received medical care from Dr. Cheung when he suffered low oxygen and its complications at birth. Using state-of-the-art resources and knowledge from his research, Dr. Cheung and his health-care team helped Adrian make a full recovery.

The Government of Canada is committed to investing in knowledge, science and innovation, said Minister Clement.

The research being supported with the funding announced today will help us address important health issues affecting Canadians, such as cancer, heart disease and HIV/AIDS. Im very pleased the Delgado family could be with us today. Their story provides a wonderful example of how health research is helping Canadians.

With funding from CIHR, Dr. Cheung has been investigating ways to reduce damage to the heart from resuscitating oxygen-deprived newborns. He is one of the recipients of the funding announced today.
