CIHR-ICRH is proud to support the Team Grant: Lung Health funding opportunity! The goal of this investment is to unite interdisciplinary research teams to address threats to lung health while leveraging past investments, existing capacity, available infrastructure, and research expertise.

The purpose of the Team Grant funding opportunity is to fund interdisciplinary teams that will address ongoing, new and emerging threats to lung health by improving the understanding of biological, social, environmental and behavioural effects on lung health. Collectively, these teams will develop and disseminate evidence-based solutions for better lung health and overall wellness, including a focus on health disparities; equity, diversity and inclusion analyses; and Indigenous contexts.

Eligible research areas as they relate to lung health and wellness include the topics of:

  • – Youth behaviours and vaping
  • – Biological effects of vaping
  • – Data science and policy
  • – Climate and air quality
  • – Women’s health
  • – Inflammation
  • – Cancer

Potential applicants are encouraged to attend the information webinar on September 26, 2023 to learn more about the requirements of this funding opportunity and to ask questions on how to apply.
