Congratulations Dr Lewis

Dr DM Lewis has recently been successful in applying to the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) for funding in their Project Grant: Spring 2021 round.

Her application ‘Developing An Indigenous Value-Based Approach to Environmental Health Risk Assessment’ was deemed relevant to the Indigenous Health Research committed mandate, and was peer reviewed by the IHR committee.

The Government of Canada provides vital support to Canadian researchers through CIHR, spanning tightly linked pillars of health research, with the ultimate goal of improving health for all Canadians.
