Twenty-two teams of researchers at The Ottawa Hospital have been awarded more than $28 million in research grants for projects that range from improving care for patients with life-threatening illnesses and studying blood donation.

The research grants, from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, were announced by Health Minister Rona Ambrose in Calgary Tuesday.

Dr. Duncan Stewart, executive vice-president of research at The Ottawa Hospital, said the grants are a signal that “The Ottawa Hospital is increasingly being recognized as one of Canada’s top research and learning hospitals. I think our success in this grant competition is one more illustration of that.”
