Grant recipients may obtain up to three years of support for research in the biomedical, clinical, health systems and services, population and public health sectors.
This program provides support to child health researchers early in their careers. It is intended that New Investigator Research Grants will enhance the grant recipient's capacity to compete with more senior investigators for research grants from other funders. We fund research that has the potential to have a significant impact on child health outcomes.
