Annual Report 2006-2007
Health researchers generally measure their success by indicators such as papers published, conferences and workshop papers presented, prizes awarded, patents filed. But there is a more central indicator - the application of the knowledge generated by health research to improve the health of Canadians.
You are going to meet in these pages some of the people whose lives have been improved by health research - people who, faced with their own or their families' health challenges, have been helped by the results of health research funded by CIHR. You are also going to meet some of the talented women and men who carry out this research - Canadian researchers who are among the very best anywhere.
The stories of these and many other Canadians motivate and are a source of tremendous satisfaction for the thousands of researchers throughout Canada who have devoted their careers and their lives to finding solutions to the health problems that affect so many people. They provide poignant examples of the ways that health research is, indeed, "touching lives".
