The Baxter Research Awards support high quality practice based research aligned with the mission and strategic priorities of the London Health Sciences Centre. Baxter's mission is to deliver critical therapies for people with life-altering conditions and/or developing innovative solutions that improve patients’ quality of life. The funding serves to encourage professional staff to engage in practice-based research, develop their research skills, and enable them to generate pilot data that may be utilized to support larger externally funded research projects in the future.
