*Internal Review

As in the past, internal review of your application is required in order to be eligible for future internal Bridge Funding competitions.  The internal review option is provided through our UReview system. 

Given that the timelines are very short, we encourage you to rely on experienced colleagues who you are confident have the expertise to review your applications.  We therefore ask that you identify your potential reviewers when you submit your application.  Internal review will be provided for those applicants who submit by the deadline listed above.  Should you organize your own internal review, please submit the names of the reviewers along with your name and the title of your application to [at] (subject: CIHR%20Internal%20Review) (N) [at] (ancy Kwan).

We encourage applicants to register as early as possible in order to access the CIHR application form.
