Review program to support health research faculty in grant applications

A new review program, will support University of Windsor faculty in their pursuit of project grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

Applications nationwide are winning approval at an all-time low rate, hovering just over 10 per cent, pointing up a growing need for mechanisms to help applicants submit the most competitive proposals possible.

The mixed internal/external CIHR grant review program is intended to improve the quality of applications submitted and enhance the likelihood of funding in a peer-reviewed grant competition. The Office of Research and Innovation (ORIS), in collaboration with the Office of Vice-President of Research Innovation (VPRI) and the WE-SPARK Health Institute, is launching the program for applications beginning with the Spring 2020 round.

ORIS will provide additional updates and information on this program as it begins to roll out.
