Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)

New data analysis grants are available for researchers working in the area of cancer prevention and control.  The grants will support analysis of data from established Canadian population cohorts, including Alberta’s Tomorrow Project (ATP) and other regional cohorts within the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project (CPTP).

Ten grants of $75,000 for up to one year will be awarded, with an additional $25,000 per grant available for the analysis and use of existing biosamples.

Specifically, the grants are designed to support research into cancer prevention and control in the following three areas:

  • Targeting High Fatality Cancers
  • Health Economics and Health Services Research in Cancer Control
  • Redressing Cancer Risk Factor Disparities and Prevention Service Inequities

For more details, please visit the CIHR website.


Diabetes, Obesity and Nutrition Strategic Clinical Network

New seed grants are available from Alberta Health Services’ Diabetes, Obesity, & Nutrition Strategic Clinical Network (DON-SCN). Four grants of $10,000 each will be awarded for research targeting prevention or improved care for patients at risk of or experiencing diabetes, obesity or nutrition-related health problems.

The seed grants aim to provide support to develop or strengthen new research proposals for future external funding from organizations like the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) and Alberta Innovates (AI).
