Our Approach

We develop and execute research funding competitions that allow us to invest in collaborative, innovative, high-impact, peer-reviewed health research that is relevant to improving the health of Saskatchewan people. 

Strong partnerships are at the core of innovative health research. SHRF joins with other funding agencies, non-profit organizations, industry and other health research supporters to not only increase the investment in research and innovation in Saskatchewan, but to strengthen researchers’ capacity and competitiveness while aligning with the unique needs of the province.
