CIHR Project Grant Recipients

The Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) Project Grant competition takes place twice a year for the purpose of supporting Canadian researchers’ innovative ideas that will advance health-related knowledge, health research, health care, health systems and/or health outcomes. This funding assists incremental, innovative knowledge translation projects from discovery to application, including commercialization. To be eligible, the nominated principal applicant must be either an independent researcher or a knowledge user.
