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.

2020 IAB Membership Renewal Cycle

CIHR has launched the 2020 IAB membership renewal cycle. The web application forms submitted online between now and April 6, 2020 will be considered for the 2020 cycle. Application forms received after the deadline will be stored in the database and considered for the next renewal cycle.

During the selection process, each Institute will review the full list of candidates who submitted applications to their IAB to determine which candidates 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). During this year’s membership renewal cycle, the following Institutes are looking for new members to fill gaps on their IABs:
