UHN Research - Stand with Ukraine Program

The invasion of Ukraine by Russian armed forces has created a humanitarian crisis that has displaced millions of Ukrainian citizens. These injustices have inspired UHN to provide support for Ukrainians involved in medical research.

To support the research careers of Ukrainians who have been displaced by war and with the help of the UHN foundations, UHN has launched the Stand With Ukraine Program. This program will support postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, exchange students, scientists, research associates and technicians who emigrated to Canada in 2022 and whose scientific interests align with UHN Research.
