Other : Network Grants in Skin Health, Bone Health and Muscular Dystrophy
This funding opportunity will provide support to create three networks: one in the area of Skin Health, one in the area of Bone Health and one in the area of Muscular Dystrophy. The aim of these networks will be to provide research leadership, stimulate innovative research and practices, strengthen research capacity, and provide a forum that engages the research community and its partners (including but not limited to industry, charities, and patients and their carers). The networks are expected to be national in scope, multidisciplinary and multi-thematic; and to foster collaborations, effective interactions, and scientific excellence.
Other : Planning Grants for Implementing Healthy Urban Policy
The CIHR Healthy Cities Research Initiative (HCRI) is a major initiative led by the Institute of Population and Public Health (IPPH) in collaboration with the Institute of Aging (IA), Institute of Gender and Health (IGH), Institute of Health Services and Policy Research (IHSPR), Institute of Indigenous Peoples' Health (IIPH), Institute of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis (IMHA), and Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes (INMD). HCRI is designed to deepen Canada's scientific leadership in planning, designing and building healthy cities. Achieving the goal of leadership in the science of healthy cities requires partnership across many sectors and all levels of government.
