How the Canadian Vascular Network is run

The Vascular Network is a group of clinicians, scientists, health researchers, experts, and representatives from partner organizations across Canada. The CVN is currently operating under a Canadian Institutes for Health Research Emerging Networks Grant and is therefore governed by the policies and procedures that accompany this funding agreement.

Principal governance of the Network comes from an appointed Steering Committee with guidance from an active Stakeholder Advisory Committee. A dedicated management team provides day-to-day support and oversight of the CVN.

The VN is hosted by the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. Scientific leadership is provided by Scientific Director, Dr. Duncan Stewart and Vice-Scientific Director, Dr. Peter Liu. Additional leadership is provided by priority area co-leaders in each of the four CVN priority research areas.
