Institute Advisory Boards (IABs)
Due to the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have postponed the application deadline to July 6, 2020. All applications, new and previously submitted, that are received by this deadline will be considered for the 2020 cycle. Applications submitted after the deadline will be stored in the database and considered for the next renewal cycle.
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 July 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:
- Cancer Research
- Circulatory and Respiratory Health
- Gender and Health
- Human Development, Child and Youth Health
- Indigenous Peoples' Health
- Infection and Immunity
- Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis
- Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes
- Population and Public Health
