Grants to Canada researchers affiliated with health agencies, IHEs, and research institutions to advance significant medical research in eligible areas. Interested applicants are required to submit a Letter of Intent prior to the full proposal. Funding is intended to support impactful programs that will improve scientific knowledge related to cancer, and will result in enhanced treatment and care for patients.
The Impact Grant program supports significant progression in cancer research programs that are anywhere in the continuum from basic, high impact discovery to translational work of direct relevance to the clinic, to applied research. Impact Grants aim to accelerate and focus the knowledge gained from scientific findings, in the short- to medium-term, into outcomes that will:
Impact Grants provide funding to support ideas that promote major advancements in research programs, whether at the fundamental discovery stage (such as studies involving model organisms that demonstrate potential for impact) through to applied research (such as patient or population-based proposals). Applications are encouraged from, but not limited to, the areas of biomedical, clinical, health services, and social and population health research.
Impact Grants are not intended to support incremental scientific advances but to promote major advancement in research programs that will impact cancer, whether at the fundamental discovery stage or in more applied research.
Impact grants have been created to cultivate and support programs in cancer research that have the potential to significantly impact the burden of disease in patients and populations. The goal of the CCS Research Impact Grant program is to provide a mechanism for scientists to accelerate the application of new knowledge and apply innovations to address important problems in cancer research and care.
Applications are encouraged that are relevant to:
