2) Grand Challenges Canada - Saving Brains

Grand Challenges Canada is pleased to announce a new initiative in its Maternal, Neonatal and Child Health grand challenge. It’s called Saving Brains. Its goal is to unlock potential in children and dramatically transform lives in the developing world. 

 

200 million children in the developing world fail to reach their full cognitive potential. In turn childhood developmental deficits result in an estimated 20% or greater loss in adult income, condemning these individuals and their communities to a relentless cycle of poverty. 

 

“The waste of human capital is enormous,” says Joseph L. Rotman, Chairman of Grand Challenges Canada. 

 

Key poverty-related risk factors include: malnutrition, infection, poor management of pregnancy and birth complications, and lack of stimulation and nurturing

 

“Imagine a world where children reach their full potential,” says Dr. Peter A. Singer, Chief Executive Officer of Grand Challenges Canada.  “That is the world the Saving Brains initiative is aiming to create.” 

 

Saving Brains is designed to promote cognitive, physical and social development in the first thousand days of these underserved children’s lives. Through unleashing the potential of these children, transformational change may be achieved within a generation by breaking the cycle of poverty that has entrapped so many developing countries. 

 

“Up until now, the fulfillment of human potential has not been a focus of attention,” says Dr. Karlee Silver, Program Officer, Grand Challenges Canada. “Saving Brains is an extraordinary opportunity to make a difference and Grand Challenges Canada is committed to addressing this significant global issue.”

 

This request for proposals commits up to $10 million CAD awarded over 2 years to fund 8-10 research teams with leadership from low- and middle-income countries in order to identify the most effective means to promote cognitive development. The teams will be expected to re-enroll participants from studies they have previously conducted and assess the long-term effects of interventions targeted at malnutrition, infection, pregnancy and birth complications, or nurturing and stimulation that were administered during the first thousand days of development.

 

The complexity of the issue requires Integrated Innovation which is at the heart of the Grand Challenges Canada approach. Integrated Innovation is the coordinated application of scientific/technological, social and business innovation to develop solutions to complex challenges.

For the full Announcement, see: http://www.grandchallenges.ca/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Saving_Brains_Announcement_EN.pdf  

 

The money to fund this program comes from the Development Innovation Fund. In Budget 2008, the Government of Canada committed $225 million CAD over five years to the Development Innovation Fund, to support the best minds in the world in a collaborative search for solutions to global health challenges.

Approximately 15 awards will be offered

 

IDRC offers these research awards annually to Canadians, permanent residents of Canada, and citizens of developing countries pursuing master’s or doctoral studies at a recognized university or having completed a master’s or doctoral program at a recognized university.

 

As a research award recipient, you will undertake a one-year paid program of research on the topic you submitted when competing for the award. During part of the time (often around 50%), you will be trained in research management through hands-on experience with your chosen program. You will work under the mentorship of a program officer.

 

These awards focus on research carried out in one or more developing countries. Most research awards positions are for 12 months and are based at IDRC’s head office in Ottawa, Canada. A few take place in one of IDRC’s six regional offices. Candidates must conduct their research in areas corresponding to IDRC's research priorities (http://publicwebsite.idrc.ca/EN/AboutUs/WhatWeDo/Pages/OurPrograms.aspx).

 

The IDRC research awards aim to provide exposure to research for international development through a program of training in research management and grant administration under the guidance of IDRC program staff. They are designed to provide hands-on learning experiences in research program management, and in the creation, dissemination, and use of knowledge from an international perspective. 

 

In principle, IDRC supports research in all developing countries. At this time, however, we do not support awards that involve research in Burma, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Eastern Europe, or Central Asia.

 

Research award recipients holding award tenure in Canada in 2011 receive a salary ranging from CA$37,035 to CA$42,873 per year. Some travel and research expenses will also be supported, up to a maximum of CA$10,000.

 

How to apply

CIHR launched its Café Scientifique program as an outreach initiative that would provide answers to questions of popular interest to the general public. As a result, over 330 CIHR Café Scientifiques events have been funded to provide educational and informal discussions regarding popular health topics. CIHR Cafés are typically held in bars or cafés, and involve a panel of experts who specialize in the topic at hand. The primary point of these events is accessibility: to be a member of the audience, you don't have to have a science degree. You need to be interested in learning and asking questions.

 

Through its Café Scientifique program, CIHR organizes its own Café events but also establishes partnerships with non-profit organizations, universities, research centres, science centres and museums across Canada. If successful, these Café Scientifique partners can expect to receive $3,000 in funding to host their own Café. Please note: these funds can be used to host more than one Café.

 

In order to be funded, Cafés must meet the following criteria:

 

·       the subject must be a health research-related issue of interest to the general public;

·       a brief description of the Café must be provided along with an explanation of the importance of the topic itself;

·       the name and description of the institution that will be hosting the event (to whom the payment will be made) must be provided;

·       all Cafés must respect CIHR's guidelines for participants and organizers;

·       through relevant experience, the organizers must show how they will be able to meet the Café's goals (including a realistic budget forecast and communications plan);

·       there must be at least two CIHR-funded researchers on the panel of experts;

·       CIHR support must be appropriately recognized through use of promotional material prior to and at the event itself;

·       after the event, the organizers must be willing to evaluate the Café's success and demerits by distributing a CIHR survey to participants;

·       a point of contact for all communication purposes must be provided (including phone number, fax number and e-mail address);

·       a person who has signing authority to claim CIHR funding must be identified;

·       the tentative date, time and location for the Café must be provided (the event has to take place prior to June 29, 2012).

 

For more information, please read the attached document. You must apply for funding using CIHR's ResearchNet website. Click on "Find Funding" on the left navigation, and then go to the "Other" section of funding opportunities. CIHR's Café Scientifique Program will be listed there. The deadline for applications is 8 p.m., June 30, 2011.

 

For questions or further information, please contact:

Peter Maitland (peter.maitland@cihr-irsc.gc.ca)

 

All submissions will be evaluated by a CIHR appointed jury and decisions will be announced at the beginning of September 2011.

The Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI) of the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), in partnership with the Institute of Population and Public Health (IPPH) of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), produced a casebook that showcases population health intervention research (PHIR) in Canada.

 

The overarching theme that guides the research cases presented in the casebook is health equity. The content is organized and presented within three broad categories: exploring implementation processes that support PHIR; evaluating setting-specific programs; and researching multi-component, community-wide interventions. Within these categories, the research cases explore the theoretical and methodological approaches used in the field of PHIR; demonstrate impact and lessons learned; illustrate uptake by program planners and policy decision-makers; and identify implications for research, policy and practice.
