The Office of Sponsored Research is pleased to invite McGill researchers and administrators to an information session on the upcoming CIHR Foundation scheme.
The workshop will include:
- a presentation about the requirements of the CIHR Foundation grants;
- presentations by two McGill researchers. They will provide potential applicants with insider information about the peer-review system and/or strategies for preparing a successful proposal:
Professor Robyn Tamblyn (Department of Medicine and Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics; Scientific Director, CIHR Institute of Health Services and Policy Research)
Professor and Chair Joaquim Madrenas (Department of Microbiology and Immunology, also has served as chairman of CIHR Immunology and Transplantation panel and as a member of the Advisory Board of the CIHR Institute of Infection and Immunity)
A question and answer period where participants will be encouraged to pose any questions that they may have about this funding opportunity. Please send your questions in advance to maureen.donato [at] mcgill.ca (Maureen Donato).
The internal guide prepared by the Office of Sponsored Research will be distributed at the workshop.
