WINDSOR, ON, August 4, 2020 - WE-SPARK Health Institute is accepting applications for funding to stimulate the development of early-stage, novel, and innovative health research and education projects in Windsor-Essex.

The projects may include studies related to emerging topics in health, addressing gaps, catalyzing new ideas, generating and disseminating knowledge, and sparking collaborations. 

“The objectives of these grants are far-ranging” said Dr. Lisa Porter, Executive Director. “Not only will they generate interest and an eagerness in the Windsor-Essex health research environment, we believe these grants will result in practice changes, policy reform, create new knowledge, support local patients, residents and communities, and attract more funding to Windsor-Essex."
