 As announced by Minister Jane Philpott in her message to Canada’s health research community, CIHR will convene a working meeting in the very near future to discuss the quality and integrity of CIHR’s new peer review processes. This meeting will allow representatives of the research community and CIHR an opportunity to review and address the concerns raised by health researchers and peer reviewers.
