a) Intersections 2(2) Spring 2011 Newsletter

http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/38563.html

 

We are pleased to present the Spring 2011 edition of IGH’s biannual newsletter Intersections. This issue is dedicated to the Institute’s strategic direction on work and health, an area that will be the focus of targeted funding opportunities launched by the Institute over the next two years. Our interest is to support research that elucidates the health implications of the gendered and sexed nature of work and that offers solutions that take gender and sex into account.

Inside this issue of Intersections we feature some of the innovative gender and sex questions being addressed by Canadian researchers in work and health. In our regular columns, such as the IGH Cochrane Corner, Trainee Spotlight, and KT Monitor, you will find highlights of current issues and achievements in gender, sex and health research.

in this issue:
• Gender and the New Diseases of Occupation
• From Womb to Old Age: Sex, Gender and the Health Effects of Work
• Hooked on Health in the Fishing Industry
• The Shady Side of Work under the Sun

Intersections is available online in html and pdf formats at: http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/38563.html

MS Call for Proposals Status
The Letter of Intent review in response to SHRF’s Call for Proposals for plans to undertake clinical trials on the liberation treatment for multiple sclerosis was completed in February. The Full Proposal deadline has passed and peer review is now underway. We expect to make an announcement regarding the outcome of the peer review later this spring.

 

Spinal Cord Injury Research Initiative
On March 15th the Government of Saskatchewan announced $4.3 Million of funding for a 5-year Saskatchewan-based initiative in partnership with the Rick Hansen Institute to improve the lives of people with spinal cord injury and disabilities. As part of this package, SHRF will be managing a $1 Million investment on behalf of the Ministry of Health for translational and clinical research related to spinal cord injury. We have created an advisory panel to design the focus and parameters of the research funding and assist in crafting the Call for Proposals to be launched in June and targeting a first intake in October 2011.
