By May 31, 2018No Comments

As BC’s health research funding agency, with a focus on talent development, we think deeply about how to best support BC health researchers and balance important considerations like equity and diversity.

Dr. Zena Sharman, MSFHR’s Director, Strategy, is an expert in gender and health. Here, she outlines what we know about gender equity in health research funding, what we wish we knew, and the steps MSFHR is taking to foster gender equity in our programs.

Forward Thinking is MSFHR’s blog, focusing on what it takes to be a responsive and responsible research funder.
