As you know, CIHR is making substantial changes to their funding programs. The University of Saskatchewan and the Saskatoon Health Region were privileged to have CIHR delegates visit Saskatoon on January 28, 2013. As a part of this visit, CIHR President Dr. Alain Beaudet gave a town hall presentation on CIHR’s new open suite of programs and peer review processes.
