CIHR Project Grant Fall 2016 Competition Results

The results from the Project Grant: Fall 2016 competition are now available. A total of 475 research projects were awarded funding, plus an additional 121 bridge grants, for a total investment of approximately $359 million.
As a result of the decision to delay the Spring 2017 competition, an additional $100 million was invested in the Fall 2016 competition. This allowed CIHR to fund a larger number of highly ranked projects. As announced earlier this month, changes are being made to the Project Grant process in advance of the next competition.  Read more…
