PI Contribution Professor David Olson, University of Alberta, Edmonton. Prof. Olson invited Dr Slater to become a member of a scientific research group/team that focuses on the aetiology and prediction of preterm birth. This is a scientific collaboration that has recently been successful in obtaining a funding award for an Interdisciplinary Team Grant from the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) (awarded December 2007, $5,000,000 for a period of 5 years). Thus this is an exciting opportunity for Dr Slater to interact with a team of 20 interdisciplinary (Basic, Clinical, Health Service and Population Health) investigators from the Universities of Alberta, Calgary, Lethbridge, Toronto and. Western Australia.
