Twelve exceptional BC health professionals have been funded in MSFHR's second Health Professional-Investigator (HP-I) competition. Each will receive funding to support research focused on answering questions derived from their practical experience and clinical expertise.

MSFHR’s HP-I Program is designed to develop BC’s research talent and help decrease the gap between health research and its implementation by supporting health professionals who are actively involved in patient care to conduct and apply research relevant to health and/or the health system.

The 12 award recipients include a nurse, a psychologist and physicians specializing in cancer, stroke, asthma and HIV. In addition to their roles as health professionals, these awardees will conduct research intended to improve patient health outcomes – from testing a hand-held breast cancer imaging tool, to exploring how to identify which HIV patients are most likely to benefit from adherence support via text message.
