details.
The grants are designed to support research by investigators at the
academic rank of associate or full professor on suicide from a variety of
disciplines, including psychiatry, medicine, psychology, genetics,
epidemiology, neurobiology, sociology, nursing, health services
administration and many others. Grants are not intended to support the
development or implementation of prevention programs, educational
programs, treatments, or other interventions that do not have a significant
research component. These grants are intended to fund new directions and
initiatives in suicide research rather than to supplement the recipient's
existing research and their junior investigators.

This program (Phase 2) is designed to provide outstanding Clinician
Scientists the opportunity to develop and demonstrate their independence
in initiating and conducting health research through provision of a
contribution to their salary. Applications are invited in all areas of health
research.

The program has two phases: Phase 1 provides stipends while the recipient
undertakes research training. Phase 2 provides a contribution to the salary
of the recipient for up to six years. For Phase 2, the award must be held in a
Canadian medical or dental school or affiliated institution. During Phase 2,
both the candidate and the institution must make a commitment that not
less than 30 hours per week will be spent on research.

The award must be held in a Canadian medical or dental school or affiliated
institution. Applications are invited in all areas of health research.


Nominees must be active currently in their organization and in the health
services field. Eligible nominees are
- individuals working in executive management positions in a health care
organization (hospital, community health centre, regional health authority,
provincial ministry, community health agency);
- individuals who have articulated a compelling vision of the future of their
organization and demonstrated ability to execute extensive implementation
and organizational change based on good evidence;
- individuals who have implemented major quality improvement initiatives
driven by evidence within their organization or regional population, making
a substantial difference to population or patient care, outcomes and use of
resources.
The Henry Friesen Award (CSCI/RCPSC) is sponsored by the Canadian
Society for Clinical Investigation (CSCI) and the Royal College of Physicians
and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC). The award will be presented in
recognition of biomedical or related research in Canada that is recognizable
on the international field as novel and original and of the highest calibre.
The body of work should be of significant duration to be proven
longitudinally, and the nominated individual should serve as a role model to
the membership of the CSCI and the RCPSC
This award recognizes three important elements - innovation, quality and
teamwork. 3M Canada encourages institutions and health care providers to
embrace quality management by developing innovative approaches that
bring about sustainable improvement. This award provides Canadian health
executives with an excellent opportunity to recognize team members who
have applied the quality process to create measurable benefits in their
network of services and programs.

Awards will be made to the qualifying team in each of the following
categories:
- Programs and processes in an acute care hospital environment
- Programs and processes in a non-acute environment
The Quality of Life Award honours those who work to improve their
patients' lives through their desire, creativity and dedication. It is a
celebration of the human spirit.
Eligibility This award is presented to an individual or team for any initiative
that improves the quality of life of a patient or patients. Quality of life can be
interpreted broadly to include any act that improves a patient's health
and/or spirit. Any person or group of people within the health system is
eligible. This award is open to CCHSE members and non-members alike.
Nominations must be made by a member of the CCHSE.




The awards are given out to emphasize the importance of mentors in
developing Canada's next generation of health researchers. The CIHR
Synapse Awards honour persons who have made exceptional contributions
to the promotion of health research among Canadian secondary school
students.

The three awards, which are presented to one graduate
student/postdoctoral fellow student, one accomplished researcher and one
research group, recognize the efforts of those who promote health research
among Canada's high school students. All award recipients share their
passion for research and their scientific know-how with today's youth.

The award recognizes the outstanding capabilities and achievements of a
senior executive who has made innovation a focal point of their
organization's strategy in order to create high impact results. The successful
recipient will have systematically created a culture of innovation that
inspires and supports staff to make breakthrough changes in the way
patient care is delivered, and leads by example with passion, integrity, and
resolve to challenge the status quo.
The Robert Zed Young Health Leader Award is presented to a Canadian
health leader who has demonstrated leadership in improving the
effectiveness and sustainability of the country's health system.

of Directors in 2005 to recognize high-quality papers submitted as a
component of the CHE certification program. The papers demonstrate
comprehensiveness, critical thinking and strategic problem solving skills.
They are widely applicable and often add valuable new information to the
literature in the field.
The Canadian Diabetes Association is committed to the training and
development of future scientists and clinicians in Canada.

of the applicant's most recent doctorate degree (M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc., D.D.S.,
Pharm.D., D.V.M., or equivalent). The applicant may apply before taking up
their research appointment or within the first 36 months of his/her first
independent research appointment. Extenuating circumstances should be
discussed with the Manager Research at CDA prior to applying.
Through the Institute Community Support (ICS) Program, the CIHR
Institutes are launching the ICS Travel Awards competition for students,

The International Balzan Prize Foundation's aim is to promote culture, the
sciences and the most meritorious initiatives in the cause of humanity,
peace and brotherhood among peoples throughout the world. The Balzan
Prizes are chosen by the General Prize Committee in two general subject
areas: Literature, Moral Sciences and the Arts; and the Physical,
Mathematical and Natural Sciences and Medicine. The four Balzan Prizes,
two per category, are awarded to scholars, artists and scientists who have
distinguished themselves in their fields on an international level. The
subject areas in which the awards are granted are rotated, and this special
characteristic of the Balzan Prize ensures the promotion and recognition of
new or emerging fields of study or research that may have been overlooked
by other international awards. In 2001, the Articles of the Balzan
Foundation made a stipulation that prizewinners must destine half of the
prize to finance research projects that are preferably carried out by young
scholars or scientists.

The award recognizes a family medicine researcher who has made original
contributions to research and knowledge building for family medicine in
Canada. The nominee's contribution may encompass any specific aspect of
family medicine research from clinical to health services to education. This
award has been designed to honour a family medicine researcher who has
been a pivotal force in the definition, development and dissemination of
concepts central to the discipline of family medicine.
The purpose of these scholarships is to support family physicians
committed to enhancing their knowledge or skills in women's health to
meet the needs of their community within Canada.

The learning activity is to take the form of a clinical traineeship and
mentorship and should be an active, individualized, and practical
experience related to clearly-defined educational objectives in areas such
as:
- sexual and reproductive health,
- sexually transmitted diseases,
- breast health,
- prevention and screening of gynecological diseases,
- obstetrics,
- menopause, etc.

                              Brief Info

Duration: 3 months. Summer Studentship grants award $4,000 over
a period of three months to undergraduate students to allow them to
pursue liver-related research projects under the guidance of leading
liver researchers. The recipients of these awards are usually science
students who have not yet chosen a medical specialty. It is hoped that,
by exposing them to important issues and problems related to liver
disease, some might be enticed into considering hepatology as a
career choice
Duration: 2 Years. These awards are intended for scientists-in-
training who are working towards obtaining their Masters or Ph.D. in
liver research.



The CCHCSP supports highly qualified child health clinician
candidates who wish to develop the requisite knowledge and skills for
a career as an independent scientist in child health research. Trainees
will engage in research training and a core curriculum in one of the
participating Child Health Research Training Centres of the Canadian
Child Health Clinician Scientist Program.
The Predoctoral Award is directed at candidates with a health
professional degree who wish to engage in or enhance their research
training. Examples include a M.D. or a nurse with a M.Sc., both of
whom lack prior extensive research training. Individuals applying to
train in laboratory-based (biomedical) sciences will be expected to
engage in a Ph.D. program that includes doctoral level research. In
some disciplines, training towards a Ph.D. may not be available or
appropriate, e.g., some clinical epidemiology programs. In these cases,
individuals will be expected to complete a master's degree and
perform research that is consistent with that achieved within a
doctoral program. Registration in a graduate program is a
requirement. A 90 percent time commitment to the research program
is expected.
The OHTN supports research that has the potential to improve the
health and quality of life for people living with and affected by HIV,
contribute to HIV prevention efforts in Ontario, and address issues
that are a priority to the HIV community. In accordance with its
Strategic Plan to 2015, the OHTN is taking a strategic approach in
allocating its research dollars to support high quality, rigorous, and
relevant research that will improve the health and well-being of
people living with and at risk of HIV in Ontario.

Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards are designed to encourage the
further career development of a researcher who has completed her or
his professional training (M.D., Ph.D.) in a field relevant to HIV/AIDS
research. The purpose of this award is to enable candidates to develop
a line of research and to consolidate a research career.

The OHTN generally offers support to Ontario-based researchers in
HIV disease in these areas:
- Basic science
- Clinical science
- Epidemiology
- Social/Behavioural Research.

These fellowships are training grants designed to enable young
investigators to qualify for independent careers in suicide research.
The training can be in either basic or clinical research and must be full
time; that is, fellows are expected to devote at least 40 hours per week
to the training program and may not have any significant clinical or
other responsibilities during the funding period. AFSP research grants
support studies that aim to increase understanding of the causes of
suicide and factors related to suicide risk, or to test treatments and
other interventions designed to prevent suicide. The study must have
an essential focus on suicide or suicide prevention.

Linked Standard Research Grants are designed to support research on
suicide, at three or more sites, from a variety of disciplines, including
psychiatry, medicine, psychology, genetics, epidemiology,
neurobiology, sociology, nursing, health services administration, and
many others. Both basic science and applied research projects will be
considered, providing the study has an essential focus on suicide or
suicide prevention. The grants are not intended to support the
development or implementation of prevention programs, educational
programs, treatments, or other interventions that do not have a
significant research component. These grants are intended to fund
new directions and initiatives in suicide research rather than to
supplement the applicant's existing research and their junior
investigators.

The SDE/GWIS National Fellowships Program is proud to offer
fellowships in 2012 to help increase knowledge in the fundamental
sciences and to encourage research careers in the sciences by women.
Endowment funds, mostly generated from bequests, provide the
annual income that supports scientific research done by SDE/GWIS
award winners.

For the Nell I. Mondy Fellowships, awards are for research in food
science and nutrition. The major component of the research can be
either applied or basic. Only hypothesis-driven research that uses the
scientific method is eligible.
SDE/GWIS offers fellowships for two purposes: (1) to increase
knowledge in the fundamental sciences and (2) to encourage research
careers in the sciences by women. The funds awarded by the
SDE/GWIS Fellowships may be used for research conducted outside of
the United States or by a non-U.S. institution. All funds awarded by
SDE/GWIS Fellowships are made to the institution and the research
should be conducted in locations proposed in the application, and any
location is eligible for scientific research. For the Ethel K. Allen
Fellowship, the award is for research in the natural sciences,
including: physical, environmental, mathematical, computer, life
sciences, anthropology, psychology, and statistics. The major
component of the research can be either applied or basic. Only
hypothesis-driven research that uses the scientific method is eligible.
This program was designed with the goal of establishing and
nurturing critical links between Health Canada policy makers and
external researchers in support of evidence-based public policy by
providing short-term policy assignments at Health Canada. These
short-term assignments will provide Fellows with the opportunity to
learn about how government works and how public policies are made.
For their part, policy-makers will have immediate access to
individuals, trained in a particular scientific area, and will be able to
engage with them on the scientific/technical aspects of public policy
issues.                                                   The specific
objectives of this funding opportunity are:
- Establish and nurture critical links and collaborations between
Health Canada policy-makers and Canadian health research trainees
and investigators in addressing health challenges.
- Help inform best practices for promoting the exchange and uptake of
information between policy-makers and health researchers.
- Provide trainees and investigators with exposure to how government
works and how public policies are made.
- Engage health research trainees and investigators in the policy-
making process, including contributing to the development of effective
policy responses, promoting national policy coordination, policy
analysis and supporting a high-quality shared health knowledge base.
- Encourage trainees and investigators to conduct policy-relevant
research that addresses challenges facing society.
- Assist Health Canada policy-makers in gathering the external
scientific expertise required to support increasingly complex scientific
and technical issues, by encouraging their collaboration with health
research scientists.
- Encourage science-policy integration through knowledge translation.
- Support evidence-based public policy that benefits the health of
Canadians. of this funding opportunity is to provide undergraduate

All applications for funding must include an explicit statement
defining the relevance of the proposed research to Alzheimer's disease
and related dementias.

The ASRP focuses on two research streams, Biomedical and Quality of
Life. The Biomedical Stream provides funding for research into basic
biological mechanisms related to brain changes associated with the
disease, and into the identification of therapeutic agents to combat the
disease. Applications dealing, for example, with brain-behaviour
mechanisms, biochemical changes and molecular genetics are
processed in the Biomedical stream.

While the Quality of Life stream is concerned with all aspects of
dementia care and support, the Alzheimer Society has a particular
interest in the means to improve the way care is experienced by
people with dementia living in long term care homes, and their
families. The research most favoured will be based on a person-
centred philosophy, specifically the study of interventions that
support person-centred care of people with dementia living in long
term care homes. The anticipated proposals could focus, for example,

ONF is an applied health research organization with a focus on the
development of knowledge and its implementation in order to reduce
the impact of brain and spinal cord injuries through the reduction of
these injuries. ONF seeks the development of innovative brain and
spinal cord injury prevention research content and strategies which
lead to social change and an improved culture of safety.

Brain and spinal cord injuries occur in a number of situations (i.e.
work, roads, home, sports, etc.) and ages, and thereby require a
comprehensive approach for intervention development and
implementation, policies and knowledge generation and exchange.

The primary objectives of this funding initiative are to:
1. Improve ONF's capacity by promoting formal and informal linkages
with Ontario researchers and their interns/grad students (ONF
continually looks for research partnerships to complete its work)
2. Improve injury prevention research capacity in Ontario by
facilitating the work of current researchers and promoting the
development of tomorrow's researchers (interns/grad students)
3. Improve our knowledge of specific brain and spinal cord injury
prevention content areas (youth sport, seniors falls, built
environment, etc.) and demographics (e.g., age groups, geographic
location, etc.)
4. Improve ONF's knowledge of processes that drive implementation
and uptake of prevention strategies (e.g., implementation science,

The AICR Research Grant Program encourages innovative research on
food, nutrition, physical activity and weight management in relation to
cancer prevention, treatment, and survivorship. AICR offers three
types of research grants: Investigator-Initiated Grants, Postdoctoral
Awards, and Matching Grants.

Postdoctoral Awards are available to support postdoctoral trainees at
nonprofit universities, hospitals, or research centers.

The award will provide support for highly qualified child health
clinician candidates to develop their requisite knowledge and skills for
a career as an independent scientist in child health research. Trainees
will engage in research training and a core curriculum in one of the
participating Child Health Research Training Centres of the Canadian
Child Health Clinician Scientist Program.

The Postdoctoral Award is directed at candidates with a health
professional degree and a prior Ph.D. who wish to extend their
research competence in child and youth health research. Examples
include a M.D. with a Ph.D. acquired before clinical training who needs
a postdoctoral research experience or a Ph.D.-Psychologist who
requires additional research training before embarking on a career in
child or youth health research. As a general rule, individuals who have
recently completed doctoral level research training in child and youth
health research will be expected to advance to the career development
program versus a postdoctoral experience. A 90 percent time
commitment to the research program is expected.
