The Honourable Tony Clement, federal Minister of Health announced May 7, 2008, funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) for 764 health research projects across Canada, totalling more than $298 million. Researchers at McGill University and four of its affiliated institutions the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI), the Jewish General Hospital (JGH) and the Douglas Mental Health University Institute received more than $35.5 million, one of the highest allotments in the country.

These grants, allocated between July 2007 and January 2008, fund more than 80 cutting-edge research projects in fields as diverse as arthritis, Alzheimers disease, multiple forms of cancer, nutrition, epilepsy, medical imaging, health care delivery, infertility, heart disease, cell biology and pharmacology, to name but a few.

Funding from CIHR, in the hands of our researchers, leads to knowledge-creation, improved quality of life, and even cures for many of the diseases and conditions that affect Canadians and people the world over," said Denis Thrien, McGills Vice-Principal (Research and International Relations). "McGill, in partnership with CIHR, will continue to provide our researchers with the support they need to pursue their important investigations."

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is the Government of Canada's agency for health research. CIHR's mission is to create new scientific knowledge and to catalyze its translation into improved health, more effective health services and products, and a strengthened Canadian health care system. Composed of 13 Institutes, CIHR provides leadership and support to more than 11,000 health researchers and trainees across Canada.

We are immensely proud of the researchers at the MNI, said Dr. D
