The Gairdner Foundation invites Ontario Universities and Research Institutes to submit proposals to host a partnered international symposium at the frontiers of biomedicine to be held in 2019.
With support from the Government of Ontario, the Gairdner Foundation partners with universities and institutes to hold an annual one-day symposium each calendar year. Drawing on the Canada Gairdner Awards’ history of recognizing the best in biomedical science, these symposia bring experts from across the world, along with leading Canadian researchers, to present on the state of their field
to an audience of students, faculty, and health and science professionals. Inclusion of outreach activities such as public lectures is encouraged.
The Foundation is open to proposals from all fields of health research with particular emphasis on recent advancements and breakthrough research.
As a partner, the Gairdner Foundation will provide funding for communications support to the host university/institute, and is involved in the planning of the final program.
Universities and institutes are welcome to submit multiple proposals, however only one submission can be accepted per Proposal Leader.
Maximum Project Value
