Founding members represent a group of individuals who undertook to establish the organization in its nascent form and have contributed significantly over the years in an organizational and advisory capacity. We are grateful to founding members for their prescience and commitment to the goals and ideals of our society. These are our elder statesmen.

Members who support Friends of CIHR will receive publications and news updates directly and have opportunities throughout the year to participate in activities and events important to the health and health research communities.
