New funding opportunity to support CNTRP emerging researchers - LOI deadline July 29, 2016
The CNTRP, through direct funding support from the CIHR Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health, is partnering on the current Emerging Research Leaders Initiative 2016 to support the successful early career launch of new investigators who are researching how to increase organ donation and access to heart transplantation in Canada and/or enhance the survival and quality of life of Canadians living with heart transplants.
This multi-partnered initiative, led by Heart and Stroke Foundation, includes organizational partners from non-profit, government, industry, and emerging / existing networks. Through this initiative, partners will provide establishment grant funds that will create a set of conditions conducive to the successful career launch of emerging research leaders in the cardiovascular and/or cerebrovascular health research domains. Establishment grants are intended to assist new investigators in establishing independent health research programs and achieving the research productivity necessary to obtain major funding from national and other external granting agencies.
The LOI deadline for this competition for CNTRP related investigators is July 29, 2016 and the full application deadline is September 12, 2016.
Applicants do not need to be CNTRP members when they apply for this competition, but they must be willing to join the CNTRP and integrate their research into the national network if successfully funded.
