Researchers from the OISB have received over $7.5 million from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) in support of exciting research that could lead to better treatment options for cancer, diabetes, neurodegeneration and heart disease. The projects were funded through both CIHR’s inaugural Foundation grants, as well as its most recent operating grant competition. Such success highlights the innovative systems biology research being conducted at the OISB. Congratulations to all.
