Cystic Fibrosis Canada Grants & Awards Guide
Recent award competition results:
2012/2013 – Dr. Genevieve Mailhot, Research Center CHU Sainte-Justine, Bone quality at the time of lung transplant in cystic fibrosis, $14,982.
Clinical Project grants are intended to bolster Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s commitment to clinical research and further develop clinical studies. One grant will be awarded per year.
Awarded at the discretion of the leaders of the Medical/Scientific Advisory Committee, in consultation with expert reviewers, clinical project grants provide a mechanism whereby the most important ideas for clinical studies can be forged into viable protocols, and strategies of urgent clinical relevance can be pursued (i.e. 'seed money' for small, start-up pilot projects).
Clinical Project grants are awarded for a term of one year.
The amount of a grant will be determined by the Medical/Scientific Advisory Committee, following a detailed review of the applicant's proposed budget, up to $15,000.
By February 1st, interested applicants must notify Cystic Fibrosis Canada of their intent-to-apply for a Clinical Project Grant. Please send an email to the Manager, Research Programs with the name of the principal applicant and host institution.
Applications from all interested sources must then be submitted by the April 1st deadline. A complete application form must be submitted in which a clear hypothesis is detailed, relevance to CF is demonstrated, and a brief budget is outlined. Applicants who submitted a clinical-focused research project during the annual October competition, which was unsuccessful, will be invited to submit a modified proposal for consideration.
Payment of grant
The Clinical Project grant will be paid to the host institution in a single payment on July 1st.
Within 30 days of the grant’s end date, the principal investigator must submit a financial statement-of-account. Any unexpended funds at that time must be returned to Cystic Fibrosis Canada in full.
Within 30 days of the grant’s end date, the principal investigator must submit a final progress report.
