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 $6,000 per 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.

Are you a researcher with an interest in health research that will contribute to our understanding of how to optimize the financing and funding, sustainability, and governance and accountability of our healthcare systems? Then, this research funding initiative may be of interest to you and your colleagues. The Canadian Institutes of Health Research's new Evidence-Informed Healthcare Renewal (EIHR) initiative will support researchers and decision makers to advance the current state of knowledge, generate novel and creative solutions, and translate evidence for uptake into policy and practice to strengthen Canada's healthcare systems.

The EIHR initiative focuses on three priority areas: financing and funding models; health system sustainability; and governance and accountability. Innovation in these areas will require contributions from a wide range of disciplines and methodological approaches. Health services and health policy research would greatly benefit from contributions from economics, political science, sociology, philosophy, law, and other relevant fields, and from the involvement of policy makers, decision makers and healthcare providers.

The EIHR initiative has priority announcements on the following funding opportunities:  

· Advancing Theories and Methodological Innovations

· Partnerships for Health System Improvement

· Knowledge Synthesis

· Doctoral Research Awards

· Fellowship Awards

Please note that additional EIHR funding opportunities will be launched this fall, including Expedited Knowledge Synthesis and a new opportunity called Healthcare Renewal Policy Analysis.

 

To learn more about the EIHR initiative, including current and upcoming funding opportunities and priority research areas, contact Michael at Michael.Rajendram@cihr-irsc.gc.ca or Meghan at MMcMahon.ihspr@mcgill.ca.
