Research at BC Women's is directed through the Women's Health Research Institute (WHRI). The WHRI is a real and virtual organization designed to facilitate women's health research while providing a community for women's health researchers.
The WHRI offers the following research grants and awards in women's health:
The Nelly Auersperg Award supports pilot studies in women's health which aim to generate preliminary data, test new approaches, methodologies or tools. The funding supports activities that will enable the pursuit of more ambitious studies and foster further funding applications.
The Sue Harris Family Practice Research Grant supports research that contributes to women's health within the discipline of family practice. The funding is intended to support new researchers (family practice residents and/or practitioners) to develop and carry out a pilot research project.
