CIHR recognizes that the creativity, skill, and insight of individuals and self-assembled teams lie at the heart of the research enterprise. The pursuit of excellence in research, as evaluated through the peer review process, inspires ideas that drive progress and ensures a continuous flow of fresh insights. Through the OOGP, CIHR aims to fund the best ideas in Canadian health research today. If at the time of application any of the Principal Applicants do not have an eligible position as an independent researcher (verified by the position titles and start and end dates listed in the Work Experience section (page 4) of the Common CV), then they must include a letter from their Institution confirming they will have status as an independent researcher by the start of OOGP funding (see "Important Dates" above).
