Congratulations to Dr. Robin Urquhart, Dalhousie University, for receiving funding from CIHR’s 2016-2017 Foundation Grant. NSHRF has been proud to support Robin since her time as a research trainee, and she was also the recipient of the Quest, The John Ruedy Award in 2010. Robin utilized NSHRF’s Pre-Submission Peer Review process in the Success Program to create her successful application.

“I know my application was greatly strengthened as a result (of the Success Program),” says Robin. “I am exceedingly thankful to NSHRF for facilitating this.”

Congratulations, Robin. Well deserved!
