BHCRI is pleased to announce the fall 2018 New Investigator Awards competition.
The New Investigator Awards will be offered once per year in September with a set deadline. A Scientific Review Committee will be appointed to review the grant submissions. The New Investigator Awards will be for $25,000 per year for two years. As many as three grants per year will be offered with one each to basic, clinical and population researchers, with this last category very broadly defined. Only BHCRI Senior Scientists or BHCRI Associate Members are eligible to apply.
Funding for these awards has been made available from a variety of sources; however, the single largest source is the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation (DMRF). The DMRF Board has stipulated that funds they generate may be used to fund up to half of the total amount awarded to non-Dalhousie affiliated researchers. The New Brunswick Health Research Foundation (NBHRF) has partnered with BHCRI to support New Brunswick cancer researchers, via matching funds, to a total maximum of $125,000.00 annually.
For other successful applications, whenever possible BHCRI will make up the difference with non-DMRF generated funds, but presently this is a very limited resource. We therefore encourage those researchers not affiliated with Dalhousie or not located in New Brunswick to discuss this with their local university or provincial research funding agencies and encourage them to make matching funds available to potential BHCRI grant awardees.
The deadline for LOI submission is 4:00pm ADT on Friday, 14 September 2018. Please download the application form and guidelines to apply.
