CIHR Fall 2018 Project Grant Competition results announced

Posted on


The results of CIHR’s Fall 2018 Project Grant Competition were announced on January 23. CHÉOS Scientists are leading three of the projects funded through this round of the competition and a further seven projects are supported by CHÉOS Scientists as co-investigators.

Drs. Nick Bansback and Eugenia Oviedo-Joekes are leading a network meta-analysis of opioid agonist therapies that aims to make indirect comparisons of effectiveness between different treatments by synthesizing the results of past trials. Co-investigators for the study include Drs. Aslam Anis, Martin Schechter, and Wei Zhang.

Dr. Zhang is also leading a study about developing more effective measurements of work productivity loss, supported by Dr. Mieke Koehoorn as a co-investigator. Dr. John Staples is leading a study that will look at the different driving restrictions on people with cardiac defibrillator implants and how these restrictions could impact the motor vehicle accidents.
