Provides a
molecular scaffold
for
developing tailored treatments
Identifies new cancer genes to
target with future therapeutics
Reclassified breast cancer
into
10
new subtypes
Decoded genetics of
"triple-negative"
breast cancer
This changes the way we think about breast cancer.
This research will change how
breast cancer is diagnosed and treated.
2006: Team awards introduced
Rapid response to pandemic threats
MSFHR mobilizes research to support BC's response to emerging
pandemics
SARS
H1N1
H3N2
Data holds the key to better treatments
and better health policy
BC has assembled one of the world's best public health care databases
MSFHR is a leader in
expanding access to
health data
focus on research
apply for further funding
train up-and-coming researchers
collaborate and build teams
In the late 1990s, BC's health research
community faced an uphill struggle
Only $21 million (7.6%) of CIHR funding
BC faced loss of top researchers
2003: Research Units launched
2001: MSFHR founded to revitalize BC's health research enterprise
First scholar and trainee awards offered
2005: First networking awards
2007: Technology Methodology
Platforms launched
2010: BC Nursing Research Initiative
2011: Knowledge translation awards
Health research in BC is complex

.
(
14.6%
of CIHR grants)
BC's share of federal health research funding has nearly
doubled
since 2001

2003
MSFHR-supported researchers
are first in the world to sequence
the SARS genome
Leads to fast-tracking of vaccine
candidates through MSFHR-funded
SARS Accelerated
Vaccine Initiative
2009
MSFHR-funded team identifies
groups most at risk from

H1N1
Real-time risk analysis informs roll-out of BC's immunization campaign
Population Data BC funded to provide
secure
,
coordinated
, and
effective
access to health data
2007
2011/12
MSFHR is a catalyst for health research breakthroughs
MSFHR awards allow researchers to:
The result:
New treatments and cures
World firsts and innovations
Research with impact
MSFHR bridges the gaps in BC's health research landscape
MSFHR is a trusted, independent convener
Building networks to address key provincial priorities
Working with government, academic partners, and health system stakeholders
Streamlining research infrastructure
sharing data
unifying resources
fostering collaboration
Facilitating research in the health system
