Leaders upholding cancer research policy and investment for Canada

The Canadian Health Research Forum comprised of Canadian leaders in cancer research, was formed in 2020 out of concern for the potential impacts of new federal regulations on Canada’s biomedical research ecosystem. Ultimately, the CHRF’s goal is to advocate for a policy environment that supports sustained public and private sector research investments and contributes to a world-leading health research ecosystem, for the benefit of Canadians and our knowledge economy.
