Dr. Claire Bombardier, who holds multiple roles in health research including a Canada Research Chair, Pfizer Research Chair and Co-scientific Director Canadian Arthritis Network, focuses her knowledge transfer research on bringing together clinicians, industry, affiliated researchers and trainees to provide innovative approaches to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.

Dr. Paula Goering, Director of the Health Systems Research and Consulting Unit at CAMH, holds a CIHR/CHSRF Chair in Health Services Research. The Chair, entitled Generating and Disseminating Best Practices in Mental Health and Addictions, has created opportunities for interdisciplinary training, mentorship, research and collaboration between researchers and policymakers.
