Research Development

The Max Rady College of Medicine sees value in creating an environment that results in increased competitive grant funding for basic and clinical faculty members.

With opportunity to foster collaborative research among basic and clinical faculty we can identify clusters of common activities for enhanced translational research and synergy among faculty programs. As this initiative grows and continues to take shape, we've identified preliminary areas of focus and objectives listed in the tabs below.

Areas of focus

  • Research basic and clinical
  • Collaboration
  • Mentorship and development of faculty
  • Externally funded grant support

Program objectives

  • Promoting and enhancing research activities throughout the Max Rady College of Medicine
  • Building linkages to enhance synergy and cohesion among basic science and clinical faculty
  • Mentorship of new and early career investigators
  • Develop networks and collaborative programs locally and internationally

Trainee opportunities

We want to see our trainees thrive. There are many resources, awards and opportunities available to undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Canadian Student Health Research Forum (CSHRF)

This annual event offers a venue for the networking, research exposure and recognition of Canada's most promising research trainees in the health sciences. Each year we invite universities to nominate their top PhD students in health sciences to participate in the forum.

  • A student presenting a research poster to judges.
  • 2021 Forum

    Among some of the notable highlights of this forum is a judged oral (research poster) presentation, awards of excellence, and opportunities for students to network with other participants in their research area.

    This year the forum will be held virtually, June 14 to 28.
