PHA Canada PH Research Scholarship Recipients

One of the ways PHA Canada promotes Canadian research in the field of pulmonary hypertension is by offering scholarships of up to $10,000 to outstanding trainees in support of their research. This research program allows emerging PH researchers, whose projects will contribute to the better understanding or treatment of PH, to fully delve into their scientific studies, in collaboration with specialized PH clinics.

We currently support up-and-coming Canadian researchers pursuing scientific investigations that will help better the lives of Canadians living with PH through two PH research scholarships: the Paroian Family PH Research Scholarship and the Mohammed Family PH Research Scholarship.
