Institute Advisory Boards (IABs)

Each of the CIHR's 13 Institute Advisory Boards advises on Institute-specific issues and cross-Institute initiatives. Composed of a diverse group of national and international representatives of the public, private and non-profit sectors, including the research community and health practitioners, Institute Advisory Boards (IABs) act in an advisory capacity to the Scientific Directors of the Institutes with respect to the full range of Institute activities. These activities include deliberations on Institute health research priorities and strategies and implementation plans for engaging the broader research community. The number of members on an IAB is between eight and 14.

2019 IAB Membership Renewal Cycle

The 2019 IAB membership renewal cycle ended on April 8, 2019 and candidates will be notified of decisions by mid-July. The web application forms received after the deadline will be stored in the database and considered for the next renewal cycle, to be launched in early 2020.

During the selection process, each Institute reviews the roster of candidates who submitted applications to determine which individuals would best fill the critical gaps created by turnover both in expertise and in re-balancing demographic criteria (sex, language, career stage, and geographic and institutional representation).
