Mentoring for Applied Health Researchers

NLCAHR wants to help increase the number of professional researchers working on health issues in the province’s academic institutions and health organizations.  We also want to help attract increased levels of funding from inside and outside the province for applied health researchers and research teams.

To meet these objectives, the Centre offers a semi-structured support program for new and junior applied health researchers:

The Applied Health Researcher Support Program

This program provides opportunities for new applied health researchers to benefit from the expertise of experienced and funded researchers. It helps newer researchers build proposal-writing skills and can help improve the quality of new or previously-declined funding applications.

Eligible Participants

  • New applied health researchers at Memorial University
  • Applied health researchers who have submitted proposals for funding to national granting agencies but who have not been successful
  • Experienced researchers who are beginning to work in the field of applied health research for the first time

Program Components

The Applied Health Researcher Support Program offers a number of ways to help participants build research and proposal writing skills. Participants may choose to engage in some or all of these activities:

  • Research Advising/Mentorship
  • Proposal Pre-Review
  • Research roundtable luncheons
  • Grant writing training activities
