Free Press: Medical research sector thriving in province

May 11, 2016 — 

As the Winnipeg Free Press reports:

The development of a medical research institution can be a tricky business unless there’s an unlimited source of capital to keep plowing into the enterprise.

The St. Boniface General Hospital does not have that kind of capital, but it’s picking up steam….

Christina Weise, the CEO of Research Manitoba, said there are other research facilities that do it, but the one at St. Boniface has put together the right mix of relevant research with the attendant funding support of the hospital, the University of Manitoba (virtually all the researchers are faculty members of the U of M) the province and the national research funding bodies.
