We have brought together an extraordinary team of key mentors. This
team has great depth due to the mentors’ combined research strength,
training experience, transdisciplinary skills, experience, orientation,
work across sectors, representation of a wide range of disciplines,
and already established record of collaborative work.
The team is made up of a group of outstanding researchers. For example,
Jocelyn Downie and Timothy Caulfield respectively hold Canada Research
Chairs in Health Law and Policy. Timothy Caulfield also holds a career
award from the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research. Colleen
Flood was the Labelle Lecturer in health services research at McMaster
University and is currently partially seconded to the Institute for
Research in Public Policy to work on health policy issues. Bernard Dickens,
Rebecca Cook, and Susan Sherwin are Fellows of the Royal Society of
Canada. In addition, Bernard Dickens holds the Dr. William M. Scholl
Professorship of Health Law and Policy at the University of Toronto,
Rebecca Cook was awarded the Ludwik and Estelle Jus Memorial Human Rights
Prize in 1998, Ingrid Sketris holds a CHSRF/CIHR Chair in Applied Health
Services Research and Susan Sherwin the George Munro Chair in Philosophy
at Dalhousie University. Janice Graham is the recipient of a CIHR new
investigator award and was recently nominated for a Canada Research
Chair in Bioethics.
These individuals, as well as other team members, are highly productive
scholars producing between them dozens of influential books and hundreds
of book chapters and peer-reviewed articles.
