October 19, 2017

The University of Saskatchewan has formally opened a new research centre that specializes in respiratory health. Housed within the College of Medicine, the centre will work on joint projects with other disciplines at the university, as well as the Health Quality Council, the Lung Association of Saskatchewan, and the Saskatoon Health Region to build on existing research. “This is a significant area of health care and we need a respiratory research strategy that allows us to learn more about lung disease, (to) … reduce risk, discover cures, save lives, and improve the quality of life for all Canadians,” said research centre director Donna Goodridge. Saskatoon StarPhoenix (CP)
