- Care Until Cure Research Program in collaboration with Pfizer

  

Supporting research towards improving the quality of life for people with hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders and finding a cure have been goals of the Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) since it was founded in 1953. Since 1989, through funds provided by the Hemophilia Research Million Dollar Club and the CHS, the Society has made available basic scientific research grants and studentships aimed at developing treatments for hemophilia and finding a cure. 

 

Dream of a Cure, the CHS Research Program and the 2012 Dream of a Cure Summer Studentships in Hemophilia Research Program application forms as well as the general criteria and conditions are available by accessing the CHS Web site at www.hemophilia.ca/en/research/chs-dream-of-a-cure-research-program. For Dream of a Cure, individual grants will be awarded to researchers for one to two years for amounts up to $75,000 per year while support will be offered to two interested Canadian medical or science students for up to 4 months for a maximum stipend of $6,000per student.   

______________________________

 

In addition, application forms as well as the general criteria and conditions for the Hemostasis Fellowship Program, a Fellowship in Congenital and Acquired Bleeding Disorders, which is the result of a collaborative effort between CSL Behring, the CHS and the Association of Hemophilia Clinic Directors of Canada (AHCDC), are available by accessing the CHS Web site at www.hemophilia.ca/en/research/hemostasis-fellowship-program.

 

The goal of this ongoing annual research program that encompasses a one-year fellowship appointment, valued at $75,000, is to provide fellows in hematology or other relevant fields the opportunity to acquire clinical or research skills necessary to improve care, treatment and quality of the lives of patients with hemophilia and other congenital or acquired bleeding disorders.

______________________________

 

You will also find at www.hemophilia.ca/en/research/care-until-cure the information for the Care until Cure Research Program offered by the CHS in collaboration with Pfizer. Please note that the CHS will not be accepting new applications at this time for 2012. The funds have been earmarked for second year projects which began in 2011. Should new funds become available for 2012, a call for new applications will be issued.

______________________________

 

If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Michel Long at the CHS National Office at 1-800-668-2686 or by e-mail at mlong@hemophilia.ca.

  b) Evidence-Informed Healthcare Renewal - Healthcare System Financing, Sustainability and Governance

· Funds Available: $100,000 for 6 months

 

Policy decisions must be made quickly — so quickly that research can often be left behind. Expedited Knowledge Synthesis speeds up the research process so that the best evidence arrives just in time for policy.

 

The chance to make an impact couldn't be greater. Ever-increasing cost pressures, coupled with the current fiscal environment, attention on the upcoming expiration of the 2004 Health Accord, and an appetite for new models of financing and delivering care have created an exciting opportunity for researchers to contribute to health care renewal in Canada.

 

A series of priority synthesis questions related to health care financing and funding, sustainability of the health care system, as well as governance and accountability have been identified by collaborating Ministries of Health across Canada and are detailed within this Funding Opportunity. Research teams interested in answering one or more of these questions are invited to register with CIHR by November 8, 2011. For each synthesis question, a teleconference will be held with registered teams and the relevant ministry partner to discuss and refine the synthesis question. Teleconference dates/times (end of November) will be provided to registered teams.

 

For researchers this is a rare opportunity to work directly with senior-level policy-makers. For policy-makers, this is an opportunity to have access to high-quality research syntheses, tailored to their needs, and in their hands quickly.

Program Changes to SHRF

 letterhead_flush_left

 

October 5, 2011

 

Program changes approved for SHRF’s 2012 funding competitions

 

Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation’s Board recently approved changes to funding programs that will take effect in 2012. These changes are based on feedback from the research community.

 

Beginning with the 2012 competition (March 15th deadline), SHRF will offer a revised version of its establishment grant. The program, which will now simply be called the “SHRF Establishment Grant Program”, combines and replaces the New Investigator Establishment Grant and the Establishment Equipment Grant Programs. It will provide the following changes:  (1) a three-year term (compared to the former two-year term); (2) a slightly increased amount of funding – $120,000 total, compared to the $110,000 previously available from the two combined programs; and (3) more year-to-year flexibility in spending the total grant amount. Major, essential equipment can still be requested as part of establishment grant budgets. Other than the changes outlined here, the revised program maintains the same purpose, scope, important dates, allowable expenses, and eligibility requirements as previous competitions.

 

Applicants to SHRF’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program who apply for a Tri-Agency Award (NSERC, SSHRC or CIHR) and who are successful in both the SHRF and the national competitions are expected to take the Tri-Agency Award. As an incentive for SHRF applicants to also apply for national funding, SHRF tops up the national award if the applicant remains in Saskatchewan. The amount of the two-year Top-up Incentive Award will be increased from $5,000/year to $10,000/year in salary for the award holder. The combined total will now be greater than SHRF’s fellowship award amount, rewarding the effort and excellence of these successful applicants.

 

SHRF’s Health Research Group Grant program (all three phases) will return in 2012 (October 1st deadline), after a one-year hiatus due to SHRF’s budget cut.

 

SHRF’s 2012 Awards Guide and 2012 Application forms will be released during Health Research Week (November 27 to December 3, 2011). Questions about SHRF’s funding programs should be directed to SHRF’s Funding Program Manager, Karen Glazebrook (kglazebrook@shrf.ca; 306-975-1686).

In 2010, the CIHR HIV/AIDS Community-Based Research (CBR) Program undertook an evaluation of its suite of funding mechanisms. This two stage consultation - web-based survey and key informant interviews - was overseen by the HIV/AIDS CBR Steering Committee in an effort to ensure the CBR Program was meeting the needs of the community. The final consultation report contains many important findings that will guide the decisions of the Steering Committee in the years ahead. This report is now available in both official languages. 

If you would like to receive an electronic copy of this report in either official language, please send an email to HIVAIDS-VIHSIDA@cihr-irsc.gc.ca
