Endowed Research Chairs
Keeping the QEII at the pinnacle of global research.
In partnership with visionary donors, the QEII Foundation is committed to building a generation of healthier Atlantic Canadians through the establishment of endowed research chairs.
Endowed research chairs are catalysts for change, supporting growth in a dedicated research field. They are an investment with only the interest from the investment being used to fund long-term research in a specific discipline. A broad-based committee holds a robust search process to attract the most appropriate individual for the position. This individual is appointed for a five-year term. When the term is complete, an intensive review is held to ensure standards are being met.
Dr. Ken Rockwood explains how endowed research chairs work in the video below.
