The Research Committee of the BHCRI is proud to announce the availability of four new (or revised) research funding opportunities. Three of these grants
(Seed Funds, Matching Funds and Bridge Funds) are designed for rapid turnaround and have no set due date. They will be reviewed by the Research Committee
at regularly scheduled committee meetings and therefore will need to be submitted to the BHCRI office at least two weeks before a committee meeting.
Please see for Research Committee meeting schedule: http://www.bhcri.ca/committee-meetings
The fourth grant is a New Investigator competition. This will be offered once per year 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. Please read the individual
announcements for a more detailed description of these funding opportunities.
Funding for these grants 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. Whenever possible we 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 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.
