Dawn L. MacLellan, MD
Since receiving the NSAUA Young Investigator Grant I have applied for and received peer-reviewed funding from my hospital, the IWK Health Centre and the Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation ($150,000 over 3 years). I have also received a Clinical Scholar Award from Dalhousie University of $490,000 over 5 years.
I am very grateful for the funding provided to me by the NSAUA. I continue to have 50% of my time dedicated to research. My next goal is to secure national level peer reviewed funding from the National Kidney Foundation of Canada or the CIHR (Canadian Institutes of Health Research). I have made many wonderful collaborations over the last few years. These collaborations are incredibly important as the majority of my training is in medicine, not science. Therefore, I am often very dependent upon the expertise of my colleagues.
