PSRC Research Support Grant

The Pediatric Sedation Research Consortium (PSRC) Research Support Grant provides funding to investigators who require support to conduct research using data from the PSRC database. This support will be provided through a collaboration with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Clinical Research Unit (CRU). The funding will allow the investigator to work with PhD and MSc statisticians from CRU to design and carry out the study conceived and initiated by the investigator.
