GlaxoSmithKline Partnered (2012-2013)

Agency: 
CIHR

In 1999, GlaxoSmithKline Inc. (GSK), with an investment totaling over $30M, embarked on a project that established the first of several endowed chairs. These personnel awards were designed so that they would exist in perpetuity, thus becoming a cornerstone of an academic institution’s long-term research strategy. The project was aimed at addressing the concern regarding the number of highly-qualified researchers who were leaving Canada. In total 22 endowed Research Chairs have been established (or are in the process of being established) at many of Canada’s medical schools (or affiliated research institutes) in disciplines where specific universities are particularly strong, and where GSK and CIHR both have clear scientific interest. With the aim of maximizing the impact, including the effective placement and distinction of the endowed chairs, GSK and CIHR, through the CIHR/Rx&D Collaborative Research Program, have agreed to co-fund awards for the first holder of each chair. The recipients must be judged successful and meritorious through CIHR peer review.

CASI Program

Agency: 
BWF

Scientific advances such as genomics, quantitative structural biology, imaging techniques, and modeling of complex systems have created opportunities for exciting research careers at the interface between the physical/computational sciences and the biological sciences. Tackling key problems in biology will require scientists trained in areas such as chemistry, physics, applied mathematics, computer science, and engineering. Recognizing the vital role such cross-trained scientists will play in furthering biomedical science, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund has developed the Career Awards at the Scientific Interface. These grants are intended to foster the early career development of researchers with backgrounds in the physical/computational sciences whose work addresses biological questions and who are dedicated to pursuing a career in academic research.

CIHR Café Scientifique

Agency: 
CHRI

CIHR launched its café scientifique program as an outreach initiative that would provide answers to questions of popular interest to the general public. As a result, over 330 CIHR Café Scientifiques events have been funded to provide educational and informal discussions regarding popular health topics. CIHR Cafés are typically held in bars or cafés, and involve a panel of experts who specialize in the topic at hand. The primary point of these events is accessibility: to be a member of the audience, you don’t have to have a science degree. You need to be interested in learning and asking questions. Through its Café Scientifique program, CIHR organizes its own Café events but also establishes partnerships with non-profit organizations, universities, research centres, science centres and museums across Canada. If successful, these Café Scientifique partners can expect to receive $3,000 in funding to host their own Café. Please note: these funds can be used to host more than one Café.

Major Resources Support Program

Agency: 
NSERC

The objective of the MRS program is to facilitate the effective access by Canadian academic researchers to major and unique national or international (based in Canada) experimental or thematic research resources by financially assisting these resources to remain in a state of readiness for researchers to use. MRS grants are not intended to support resources that are standard in a discipline or commonly available in Canadian universities. The MRS program also aims to facilitate access by Canadian academic researchers, who come together as national consortia, to major international resources located outside Canada, the equivalent of which is not available in Canada. This support excludes any direct financial support towards the operating and maintenance costs of such resources.

Small Health Organization Partnership Program

Agency: 
CIHR

The mandate of the Small Health Organizations Partnership Program (SHOPP) is to foster partnership opportunities with small health charities and not-for-profit organizations with modest health research funding capacity by co-funding training and salary awards. The benefit of this program is that CIHR offers partnership opportunities for small health organizations to increase their health research capacity while becoming more in line with the strategic directions of the Institutes. This program also meets CIHR’s strategic objective of outstanding research through effective partnerships in specific areas of research.
