Over the past five years, total external funding and publication numbers have doubled at Women’s College Research Institute (WCRI).
TRI-COUNCIL AND OTHER EXTERNAL FUNDING
In fiscal year 2012-13, WCRI continued to maintain the strong fiscal growth we achieved in fiscal year 2011-12. The value of our tri-council funding available to spend has grown steadily over the past five years. Other external funders continue to be an important source of revenue and are essential partners in our research endeavours. WCRI is grateful for the consistent support from Women’s College Hospital Foundation.
In 2012-13, WCRI scientists and their clinical colleagues at Women’s College Hospital continued to grow our high productivity by publishing 272 peer-reviewed articles, nearly 40 more than the previous year.
Not only do we continue to publish a wide range of clinically relevant findings in the most influential medical journals, we also prioritize the translation of our research results into clinically relevant knowledge that supports enhanced healthcare.
Last year, WCRI’s 24 core faculty members delivered a total of 340 presentations. More than half of our presentations were delivered to national or international audiences, with about half of these taking place outside of Canada (in Australia, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Mexico, Spain, Sweden and the United States).
