Because of current fiscal uncertainties, NLCAHR will be delaying the launch of our 2016 Awards Program competition until the provincial budget has been announced and its impact on the availability of program funds at NLCAHR has been clarified. We regret the inconvenience this may cause for potential applicants and will do our best to get the NLCAHR Awards Program launched as soon as possible. Updates about the program will be posted on our website here: http://www.nlcahr.mun.ca/Funding/NLCAHR/
The Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, and Eastern Health have funded five research projects under the final competition for research funding following from the Cameron Inquiry. The fund, Enhancing Health Care in NL, administered by NLCAHR, was established to support increased research and evaluation activities aimed at improving healthcare for patients in this province, including those with cancer.
