2021 Brain Tumour Research Feature Grant – Applications
Academic Unit: Inquire within your unit
Memorial Deadline: Tuesday 13th, July 2021
External Deadline: Friday 16th, July 2021
Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is a national, not-for-profit organization dedicated to reaching every Canadian affected by a brain tumour through support, education, information, and research.
We are currently seeking outstanding researchers conducting research relevant to Pediatrics. All such proposals will be given serious consideration that are Brain Tumour related.
Applications can be from multidisciplinary teams or i ndividual investi gators. Multidisciplinary collaborations are encouraged, yet applications must be submitted by the lead investigator.
Applications will be considered for Basic, Clinical or Translational Projects.
Basic Research: In this context, ‘Basic’ research involves the development of new concepts (eg. signaling pathways using an in vitro model). Basic science research is meant to increase our scientific knowledge base, with the intent of bettering our understanding of the cause and progression of brain tumours.
Clinical Research: In this context, ‘Clinical’ is defined as research that involves a particular person or group of people. This includes treatment trials, epidemiological studies, quality of life studies, outcomes, health services research or other patient-oriented research. The process of clinical research must protect personal data.
Translational Research: In this context, ‘Translational’ is defined as pre-clinical research evaluating the therapeutic potential of recent discoveries in the basic mechanisms of either brain tumour pathogenesis or experimental therapeutics. Human studies are excluded.
AMOUNT OF GRANTS FUNDED
Applications for grants of up to $50,000 will be considered.
