The Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research wanted to share this important update from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) on the sunsetting of the Foundation Grant Program. This announcement was issued this morning (April 15) and we wanted to ensure BC-based researchers were aware of this change and could plan to attend the April 16 webinar if they had any questions. Today, Dr. Michael Strong announced that CIHR has decided to sunset the Foundation Grant Program. The 2018-19 competition will still proceed as planned, however, and successful applicants will still receive their grants in full. Furthermore, those individuals who currently hold a Foundation Grant will continue exactly as planned, with no reduction in their funding levels. CIHR is hosting a webinar tomorrow, April 16, to deal with any questions you might have. Click here to register for the “Ask Me Anything” webinar.
