In general, team grants support expert teams of talented and experienced researchers carrying out high-quality research on important health issues best addressed through a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach. These teams provide superior research training and mentorship environments, and support the production of new knowledge and the translation of research findings into improved health and health care.

The Programmatic Grants in EGCD will support research examining at least one environmental and at least one genetic component, and how these components interact to contribute to chronic non-communicable disease. Programmatic grants will support a series of innovative, conceptually linked research projects executed by a group of investigators. The series of projects (i.e. the program of research) must advance our understanding of how environment-gene or environment-microbiome-gene interactions contribute to chronic, non-communicable diseases, including chronic immunologically-related diseases, and chronic metabolic diseases. The research programs supported by these grants will span beyond what a typical operating grant could accomplish, allowing applicants to incorporate their findings into the field at large, and build upon each other?s research. These grants MUST support interdisciplinary programs of research involving a diverse group of collaborators (including, but not limited to, basic scientists, geneticists, microbiologists, environmental scientists, epidemiologists, biostatisticians, and social scientists) and build on existing research platforms where possible.

Application Details: CIHR Team Grant proposals will be evaluated as a single, integrated entity. While each research component included in the application must be meritorious, it is critical to demonstrate that the CIHR Team Grant brings added value, in terms of the approach to improving the health of Canadians or strengthening the Canadian health care system.This funding opportunity has a two step application process. Phase 1 requires you to complete a Letter of Intent (LOI). Phase 2 requires you to complete an Application upon invitation. Your Application must be submitted using ResearchNet. Scan and upload the signed signature pages including the routing slip in the Print/Upload Signature Pages task in ResearchNet prior to submitting your application. **Note: Signatures MUST be uploaded for all applicants (Principal Applicant(s), co-Applicant(s), knowledge user(s) and individual(s) with signing authority from the Institution Paid for both the LOI and Full Application
NOTE: All Letters of Intent and Full Applications must be processed through Research Development & Services for institutional approval. Requests for Institutional approvals should be received no less than 3 days prior to the posted Sponsor deadline. A ROLA Proposal (bearing applicant, Chair and Dean electronic approvals) is required for each submission.
