The Division of Gynaecologic Oncology is pleased to launch a round of funding applications to support research on gynecologic cancers.
These grants are for up to $20,000, are one time only (i.e. non-renewable), and are designed to provide critical review, with rapid turn-around and constructive feedback, and funding for proposals that would not be eligible to receive funding at the national level. Examples would be clinical projects without a basic science component, projects for which there is a hypothesis but no preliminary data, smaller circumscribed projects that are self-limited and cannot be expanded into a 3 year CIHR-type proposal, etc. Preference will be given to projects that have the potential to become larger externally funded projects, but funding is also intended to support those projects that will provide a definitive answer, without the potential to directly lead to larger follow-up studies.
The Gynaecologic Research Awards may be offered in future years depending on funding.
Further details are in the attached Terms of Reference .
The deadline for submission is 1 September 2017.
