Funding Results Announced: 2019-20 Establishment Grant and Research Fellowship

Updated: Jan 7, 2022

We're pleased to announce nearly $2 million in funding for research that matters to Saskatchewan's health challenges through our Establishment Grant and Research Fellowship programs.

Researchers will establish their research in our province to tackle cancer, HIV and kidney disease. Other examples of the research supported through this program are establishing a foundation for hearing and cognitive research to ensure the best care for Saskatchewan patients; and looking at the unique roll traditional Indigenous activities play on improving the health of Indigenous peoples.

Our Research Fellows will work to develop novel solutions for male infertility; safe and rapid vaccine technologies; and advances in targeted cancer treatments and a better understanding of the disease.

The following is a list of recipients. More information on these and other funded projects is available at (Please note it may take time for results to display in our database.)
