P2P Awards


P2P Awards are offered by the BC SUPPORT Unit in partnership with the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR). These awards help BC-based patient-oriented research teams pilot and test the feasibility of their project, to make their future grant applications stronger.

Through P2P Awards, we hope to build and strengthen capacity in patient-oriented research in BC.
