University Delegates Network
Who we are
The University Delegates (UD) network keeps the health research community, universities and affiliated institutions, informed of CIHR direction, initiatives and decisions. Acting as a key link with institutions by facilitating interactions and communications with CIHR, members actively participate and raise awareness on important topics faced by the research community.

The University Delegates Advisory Committee (UDAC) provides support to the University Delegates (UD) network by ensuring that relevant topics and important issues facing the Research community are brought forth for discussion and examination. UDAC members also act as a consultation group for CIHR staff on research related policies, programs, peer review, and relevant Corporate matters. Read the UDAC Terms of Reference
