The CIHR is the equivalent of the National Institutes of Health in the U.S.  Like its U.S. counterparts, members of the committee are responsible for reviewing grant applications and making recommendations for funding.

Recently reappointed as editor of Public Health Perspectives from the Social Sciences in the American Journal of Public Health, McLeroy will serve as Guest Editor of a special issue of the journal on teen pregnancy in September of this year.
