Description Purpose of the award is to support research in a health related field and to ensure a reliable supply of highly qualified people to meet the needs of Canadas knowledge economy This includes biomedical, clinical, health services and policy and social, cultural, environmental and population health Biomedical - Research with the goal of understanding normal and abnormal human functioning, at the molecular, cellular, organ system and whole body levels, including development of tools and techniques to be applied for this purpose; developing new therapies or devices that improve health or the quality of life of individuals, up to the point where they are tested on human subjects. Studies on human subjects that do not have a diagnostic or therapeutic orientation. Clinical - Research with the goal of improving the diagnosis, and treatment (including rehabilitation and palliation), of disease and injury; and improving the health and quality of life of individuals as they pass through normal life stages. Research on, or for the treatment of, patients Health Services - Research with the goal of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of health professionals and the health care system, through changes to practice and policy.
