NSERC support for genomics research
NSERC has topped up its Strategic Grants Program funds by $1.5 million
for the upcoming competition to fund applications in the area of genomics.
Applications for genomics research must be submitted under the NSERC Strategic
Grants competition (deadline April 15). At lease one non-academic organization
that can use the research results must participate in the application.
Although this organization must commit to active involvement at all stages
of the research proposed, a cash contribution is not required. Further
information on the genomics research area is available from the NSERC
Program Guide Strategic Project Grants under the Biosciences target
area at www.nserc.ca/guide/b1_e.htm.
CIHR has announced new funding programs available through its institutes
and their partners. Some of the new funding announced includes support
for research in aboriginal health, new discoveries in musculoskeletal
health and arthritis, new emerging team grants in osteoarthritis, and
grants for workshops in human development, child and youth health. Registration
deadlines for intended applications vary between May 1 and June 2. For
detailed information on any of these new funding initiatives, visit www.cihr

made available on loan to interested researchers. These include: annual
