Description

H&S National New Investigator (NNI) awards provide salary support to individuals who have clearly demonstrated excellence during their doctoral and post-doctoral training in cardiovascular or cerebrovascular research.

New Investigator awards are tenable in Canada only.

Please Note:

  • The H&S will be offering Seed/Catalyst Grants, specifically targeted towards the improvement of the heart and brain health for women for applicants to the 2018/19 National New Investigator (NNI) program. Seed/Catalyst Grants will provide funding support to NNI applicants to conduct research to lay the groundwork for a new grant application. The Seed/Catalyst grants offer NIs the opportunity to explore new and innovative ideas with high potential to create impact on the health of Canadian women.  Seed/Catalyst grants could support knowledge translation and implementation of knowledge into practice.

Funds are available for up to four (4) Seed/Catalyst Grants and are valued at up to $50K/year for a maximum duration of up to two years.  Offers will be made to the top rated in this category, within the cut-point of the overall Seed/Catalyst Grant opportunity.  Applicants wishing to be considered for this opportunity MUST check the appropriate box in the NNI application form and complete the additional 1-page found on page 14.

  • All applicants (irrespective of proposal focus) to the GIA and NNI programs are required to include a sex and gender-based analysis in their research design (or provide rationale as to why it would not be relevant to their project).

Deadline: By 16:00 EDT on September 08, 2017.
