Projects investigating issues such as stroke, diabetes, and Indigenous health at the University of Calgary have received $29M in funding from the federal government. A UCalgary release states that the funding will help UCalgary researchers study a full spectrum of health issues, especially the priority areas of brain and mental health, and infections, inflammation, and chronic diseases. “This investment by CIHR will support our researchers in their endeavour to address our country’s most pressing health challenges,” says UCalgary Vice-President (Research) Ed McCauley.
