Research aimed at improving therapies for autistic children, winning the battle against breast cancer and improving treatments for heart and lung disease are among the innovative health care research projects receiving $21 million in funding from the province.
The funding from the Ontario Research Fund will support 14 institutions and 116 projects and involve nearly 1,000 health scientists and researchers across the province.
Provincial support for health research is an important part of Ontario’s Innovation Agenda – turning great ideas into good-paying jobs and better lives for Ontario families. Supporting innovation is part of the McGuinty government’s five-point plan for growing Ontario’s economy.
