New funding supports innovation, healthier lives

New funding for research infrastructure at B.C. universities is supporting innovative projects, like helping children in pain receive the safest, most effective pain management possible.

Through another round of BCKDF funding, the Government of B.C. is providing $2.5 million to support infrastructure for 16 research projects at five universities.

The funding includes $125,000 for research infrastructure at the Loucks Pain Management Pharmacogenomics (PMP) lab. The lab aims to help guide clinical decision-making for pain management, improve patient outcomes at the BC Children’s Hospital and lessen the burden of pain for children in B.C.
