3 What is CIHR?
4 CIHR Mandate To excel, according to internationally accepted standards of scientific excellence, in the creation of new knowledge and its translation into improved health for Canadians, more effective health services and products and a strengthened Canadian health care system CIHR is: Government of Canada s health research funding agency Supporting the work of 1,000 s of researchers and trainees in universities, teaching hospitals, and research institutes across Canada Developing high-quality people, excellent science and training the next generation of health researchers Funding research that improves Canadians health, health care system and quality of life Fostering commercialization, moving research discoveries from academic setting to the marketplace
5 CIHR s 13 Virtual Institutes CIHR s 13 Institutes have become a meeting ground for Canada s health research community Each Institute -- with its partners -- has developed a strategic plan to guide its research initiatives These plans build on existing knowledge, fill research gaps, and help to fully realize Canadians investment in health research by maximizing cooperation and minimizing duplication Population and Public Health Gender and Health Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis Aboriginal Peoples Health Health Services and Policy Research Genetics Infection and Immunity Cancer Research Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction Aging Circulatory and Respiratory Health Human Development, Child and Youth Health
6 CIHR s Research Themes CIHR s funds a broad spectrum of health research, categorized into four themes: Biomedical Research Clinical Research Health Systems and Services Population and Public Health (including the social, cultural, environmental and ethical dimensions of health)

8 What is new at CIHR?
9 CIHR s Proposed Strategic Directions and alignment with S&T Strategy Four strategic directions to address health challenges: S&T Strategy Principles 1. Invest in World-Class Excellence Promoting world-class excellence 2. Set Health and Health System Research Priorities 3. Accelerate the Capture of Health and Economic Benefits of Health Research 4. Achieve Organizational Excellence, Foster a Culture of Ethics and Demonstrate Impact Focusing on priorities Encouraging partnerships Enhancing accountability
10 Application Completeness Biggest Change Made Last Year affecting Research Community Application Completeness Announced in May 2008: As per our existing policy, CIHR does not accept applications that are incomplete. This policy will be adhered to by all CIHR staff to ensure fairness and transparency. The applicant is responsible for ensuring the application is complete and all signatures are obtained. How did it go? Highlighted loopholes in instructions Exceptions granted for all consistently More clarity regarding signatures required Dependence of researchers on research Institution s application review
11 Impact of Application Completeness on Withdrawal Rate Fall 2008 Competitions: CIHR held 62 competitions from September 1- October 30, 2008 Of the 4525 applications received 233 were withdrawn because they were not complete, representing 5%. 72 (1.6%) for missing signatures 17 (0.4%) for draft CVs 143 (3.1%) for other missing components (e.g. no budget, no transcripts, no letters of support) Some were withdrawn for multiple reasons Reminder: Applicant is responsible for verifying application is complete (as stated in Meaning of Signatures for Applicants)
