CHI Extends Canada-wide!  A Canadian Human Immunology Network is born.

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research has awarded a Network Catalyst grant entitled the “CIHR Human Immunology Network (CHIN)” to the Centre for Human Immunology (CHI) at Western University, along with seven co-applicants. This network will act as a coordinating resource to help individual researchers to optimize resources and to accelerate the pace of their discoveries and its translation into humans. The Centre at UWO will act as the coordinating node with 7 participant nodes from Dalhousie University, University of Manitoba, McGill University, McMaster University, University of Toronto, University of British Columbia and the University of Western Ontario.

As a research network, CHIN will operate as a resource “umbrella” network, facilitating communication between nodes, each with their specialized expertise in human immunology, collaboration and knowledge exchange. The spirit of CHIN is to be inclusive to the interested parties doing research in human immunology and to become an information resource for investigators considering research in human immunology. CHIN will promote and enhance human immunology research in Canada and its international projection, and effectively limit duplication of resources by developing synergies between existing teams. The establishment of CHIN will ensure that Human Immunology in Canada remains at the forefront of the international effort.
