Congratulations to our research grant recipients

In December 2012, North York General Hospital launched the Exploration Fund, a competitive granting competition designed to provide initial funding for staff and physicians to develop new ideas for the delivery of care. Among the first of its kind in Canada, the Exploration Fund was seeded with a donation by Brad and Kathy Badeau, and their contribution has been augmented by the hospital, the North York General Foundation and the Sellors Family.

The Sellors Family Research Grant is a designated time-limited fund within the Exploration Fund, to support research in the areas of autoimmune disease, neurology, and quality of life.
