IHMRI Grants Program

Young Investigator Awards

The new Young Investigator Awards (YIA), which replace Career Development Grants, aim to encourage early career clinician, health professional or academic researchers (ECR) to develop their skills, expertise and research track records, which will ultimately generate research data to enable the ECR to apply for a future competitive grant as a Chief Investigator (CI). Four YIAs are available, worth up to $10,000 each.

Clinical Translation Grants

The new Clinical Translation Grants (CTG), which replace Collaborative Project Grants, aim to encourage academic and health professional/clinician researchers to co-lead a research project to address regional and medically relevant health issues. Up to four CTGs are available, worth up to $30,000 each.
