Get Involved

 There are many ways to be involved in research.

For Trainees

Trainees of DREAM are provided access to a top-notch training environment at the Children's Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba (CHRIM). CHRIM fosters multi-disciplinary research interactions that facilitate translational research between the pre-clinical, clinical and population health-based sciences.

For Participant/Public

Our team is focused on improving knowledge about youth onset type 2 diabetes from the laboratory into the clinic, community, and back. Our team has focused on understanding risk from conception to young adulthood.  The team has since grown, with expanded expertise in type 1 diabetes, and diabetes in pregnancy, as well as a broader expertise in metabolism and epigenetics.

Another way to participate in research is by joining our advisory groups. We have you and parent advisory groups. The advisory groups help us make sure that we are asking the right questions and doing the research in the best way we can.

Support Us

Thank you for your interest in donating to our research! We aim to improve the wellness of children and their families living with diabetes by making clinically relevant discoveries (that improve their lives). Using an integrated interdisciplinary approach we will translate discoveries into practice and policy.

The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba is our main operating funding source for the institute. The Foundation invests directly into research by providing core funding for research projects, and provides administrative support, facilities, space, and equipment for scientists to conduct their work. Major funding is also allocated to training scientists at all levels of their academic journey.

If you would like to support the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba, you can make a donation through our foundation here. If you have questions about donating and how funds are allocated, or for more information, contact the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba directly: 204-953-5437.
