Congratulations to Dr. Christine Chambers who has been named the next Scientific Director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s (CIHR) Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH). The position will begin January 2020.
“I’m a passionate believer in the power of health research to improve the lives of children and their families. I look forward to engaging with stakeholders – researchers across all career stages and from different disciplines, trainees, health professionals, administrators, policy makers, partners and, importantly, children, youth, and families themselves – to build on IHDCYH’s strong foundation. Together we will tackle current health issues, address inequities, encourage a life-cycle perspective, and create partnerships to promote research excellence and impact.”
– Dr. Christine Chambers, incoming Scientific Director of the CIHR Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health
