Partnership tool for second call under the Joint Canada-Israel Health Research Program (JCIHRP) Phase II

This second call under Phase II of JCIHRP aims to support applicants conducting research in the broad area of Communicable Diseases in cutting-edge research in the biomedical sciences and global health while strengthening capacity in Canada, Israel and in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). The detailed guidelines for submission will be published on CIHR’s Funding Opportunity database.

This partnership tool is meant to facilitate connections between researchers in Canada, Israel and LMIC countries should there be interest.

The information is submitted on a volunteer basis and does not confer any advantages in the evaluation and funding of applications. Users of the tool may leverage it at their own discretion and responsibility.

If you would like to use this tool, please complete a short survey.

The table will be updated weekly, until mid-February 2023.

Notice

How can I identify potential Canadian collaborators in my field?

The following searchable databases can help researchers identify potential collaborators in Canada.

  • CIHR Funding Decisions Database: This database is comprised of data pertaining to grants and awards approved by CIHR since January 2009. Searches can be conducted using research subject, investigator, location, program, institute/theme and partners. Please note that this database does not contain researchers' contact information; however, it does identify their institution of affiliation at the time of the award.
  • Canada Research Chairs: This database of over 1,800 profiles of Canada Research Chairs will help those looking for research leaders in the natural sciences, engineering, health, the social sciences or the humanities.
  • Canadian Research Information System: This database contains data on grants and awards funded by a number of Canadian research funding agencies. Searches can be conducted using research subject, investigator, location, funded details, and agency. This database does not contain researchers' contact information; however, it does identify their institution of affiliation at the time of the award.
  • External Databases: This list contains a selection of information databases on projects funded by other agencies.

How can I identify potential Israeli collaborators in my field?

  • Israel Science Foundation Grants Database: This database is comprised of data pertaining to grants and awards approved by ISF since January 2002. Searches can be conducted using the researcher name, program, field type, grant year, and research institution.

I am interested in research in any of the areas listed below:

  1. Transmission dynamics and Molecular detection of antimicrobial resistance (e.g. detection of novel antimicrobial resistant genes; pathogen detection using next generation sequencing and novel bioinformatics tools etc.)
  2. Detection and characterization of novel tuberculosis related antimicrobial resistant genes
  3. Malaria (immuno-pathogenesis and transmission dynamics)
  4. I am open to any other novel research interests in clinical microbiology and infectious diseases

The partners I require are:

  1. Investigators from Canada and
  2. Investigators from Israel

Partenaires :

  • vétérinaire pour la conduite d'insémination artificielle afin de contourner la brucellose et de tendre vers un élevage à Brucella Zéro à court terme
  • épidémiologique pour conduire la surveillance de Brucella auprès des catégories exposées à Brucella : le personnel des tueries, les ménagères parmi lesquelles les femmes gestantes, les vendeuses de viande caprine au marché, le personnel vendeur de viande grillée dans les environs des débits de boisson. Objet:
    • caractériser Brucella qui circule dans les communautés
    • conduire un élevage pour atteindre Brucella Zéro par l'insémination artificielle des femelles caprines
  • prévalence de Brucella dans les communautés pour prévenir la résistance aux anti microbiens conséquence de l'automédication, la brucellose étant confondue a la malaria
  • mettre en évidence la coexistence de Brucellose et de malaria dans les communautés
  • préciser l'impact de Brucella sur le processus de gestation chez la femme et la chèvre Défi: Management du biorisque de la brucellose caprine dans les communautés des villes de Lubumbashi et de Kinshasa
