Stollery Science Lab
This partnership between our Foundation, the Women and Children’s Health Research Institute and the Stollery Children’s Hospital features seven star researchers who are working to give all kids the best chance to live a long and healthy life.
Meet the researchers
Our Distinguished Researchers are experts in their fields who are taking their children’s health projects to the next level. They were chosen from among 34 applicants, whose proposals were reviewed by our partners, families and patients.
Learn about their leading-edge research and the difference they’re making for children and families right in our own backyard and across the globe:
