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 Canada-Latin America and Caribbean Zika Virus Research Program is expected to: Contribute to the global response to the Zika virus outbreak; Provide and share evidence that will support decision-making and a basis for evidence-informed recommendations for national and international organizations; Strengthen scientific research capacities of Canadian researchers and Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) based researchers in Zika virus research; Establish collaborative teams between Canadian and LAC teams to share new knowledge relevant to the Zika virus on equal terms; and Increase networking and collaboration between Canadian researchers and LAC research teams and other research teams supported by other members of GloPID-R. Applications are expected to develop collaborative informal or formal linkages with research teams supported by other relevant initiatives on the Zika virus, either already existing or under development at national, regional, and international level, including other initiatives from members of GloPID-R, in order to maximise synergy and complementarity and avoid duplication of the research efforts. Specific propositions on how this can be achieved should be included in the proposal.

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.To complete your Full Application, follow the instructions in the Team Grant/Emerging Team Grant "Application" Phase Instruction Checklist along with any additional instructions found below under "Specific Instructions".
