A major shift to this dilemma took place because of the creation of the AHFMR in 1981.
I think that the AHFMR brought neuroscience research and in fact the Faculty of Medicine as a whole from being in the bottom twenty to twenty-fifth percentile of medical research in Canada to someplace comfortably in the middle in a very short period of time.
(17) A senior neuroscientist [Q.P.], who since the 1990s had been a directing committee member of AHFMR (August 28, 2015), Personal Interview with Connor Sweazev at the University of Calgary, Calgary, AB [3:45].
and thought that it would receive increased funds from the Alberta government to retain these researchers and clinicians should there be no external AHFMR support.
The AHFMR's original review process for training award applications considered three general criteria: (a) the quality of the candidate, (b) the appropriateness of the proposed research environment, and (c) the merit of the proposed research project.
While most of these general characteristics were reflected in the AHFMR's original review process for its training awards, a number of specific issues provided the incentive for the foundation to try to improve the process.
In FY1997, the AHFMR received 182 applications for full-time studentships, as compared to 276 in FY2000 and 307 in FY2001.
I wish to thank the CIHR, AHFMR
