IMHA’s Transition: Message from Dr. Alain Beaudet, CIHR President


I am pleased to announce that CIHR will soon launch a competition to fill the position of Scientific Director for the Institute of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis (IMHA). I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Phillip Gardiner, who has been doing a stellar job as interim Scientific Director of IMHA since the departure of Jane Aubin in July 2011. Phil will continue to lead IMHA until the new Scientific Director has been appointed.

Over the coming year, IMHA staff, the Institute's Advisory Board, and senior CIHR management will continue to work together to ensure that this leadership transition proceeds as efficiently and smoothly as possible.

I am confident that through the competition process, we will once again succeed in recruiting an outstanding individual who will continue to build on the Institute's successes.


Alain Beaudet, MD, PhD
