University Hospital Foundation
Medical Research Competition (UHFMRC)

Helping bright ideas in the lab become realities in patient care delivery

Community support of the University Hospital Foundation’s Medical Research Competition (UHFMRC) has contributed more than $6.4 million in seed grants to some 250 peer-reviewed research projects at the University of Alberta Hospital, the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute and the Kaye Edmonton Clinic over the past 12 years. 

By providing critical funding at the earliest stage, the Medical Research Competition has given researchers, such as Dr. Ian Paterson and Dr. Justin Ezekowitz, critical support when they need it most – before they begin.
