Endowed Chair

Dr_Hoskin.jpg
In 2006, a significant step was taken to create a future without breast cancer in this region. A collaborative effort between the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Atlantic Region, the QEII Foundation, CIBC, Dalhousie University and the Capital District Health Authority resulted in the appointment of Dr. David Hoskin as the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Atlantic Region Endowed Chair in Breast Cancer Research in 2008 for a five-year term.

This $2.5 million program included a $1.65 million gift from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Atlantic Region, a $500,000 commitment from the QEII Foundation and a $350,000 gift from CIBC. As Chair in Breast Cancer Research, Dr. Hoskin is pursuing advanced research and program development in breast cancer at Dalhousie University. 

​CBCF - Atlantic Region is pleased to announce that Dr. David Hoskin has been renamed as the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation - Atlantic Region Endowed Chair in Breast Cancer Research for a second five-year term. This renewal is based on the great success of the past five years that Dr. Hoskin has served as Endowed Chair in this region. During this time, he has provided invaluable leadership as a member of the Atlantic Region Board of Directors, Scientific Officer of the CBCF – Atlantic Region Research Grants peer-review committee, and as a member of the CBCF National Grants Working Group.
