A New Partnership to Fund Priority Research on COVID-19 Vaccination in BC

In a new and unique partnership with Genome BC and the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, we’re proud to announce that we’re funding 9 new rapid-response vaccine research projects addressing COVID-19 vaccine research priorities and knowledge gaps in real-time.

Why We Need to Support Vaccine Effectiveness Research, Right Now

As a public health foundation, it was our responsibility in early 2020 to rapidly pivot our work to support COVID-19 response, and to ensure that evidence-based information is being shared. It is now our duty to support the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out—a critical part of our efforts to address the pandemic.
