Project description :

By linking perinatal, neonatal, child, and youth health groups from academic health science centres across the country with research activities from across the four CIHR pillars2, MICYRN has established an internationally unequalled, multi-disciplinary network of researchers, clinicians, and policy experts. MICYRN has the capacity to improve the health of virtually every mother and child in the country through creating an environment of innovation, research efficiency, and effective application of new discoveries to policy and practice.

The establishment of MICYRN combined with the opportunities presented by the Clinical Research Initiative (CRI) will serve to transform the way in which we conduct maternal and child health research in Canada, and will create an environment of compelling opportunity. Through the building of key infrastructure, MICYRN will:

  • Generate new and innovative research programs by linking trans-disciplinary expertise;
  • Increase the efficiency, quality, and standards of clinical research practice, which will lead to improvements in recruitment, data management, and regulatory adherence, as well as more efficient completion of randomized trials; and
  • Dramatically improve the rate of knowledge translation (KT) and the impact of evidence on policies and practices in maternal and child health.
