The Joint Canada-Israel Health Research Program (the Program) seeks to support fundamental research at the cutting-edge of biom edical science. This fifth call for proposals is directed toward basic biomedical sciences in new frontiers in metabolism in health and disease, while building capacity and furthering the knowledge base in low- and middle-income countries

The Program will support world-class research teams co-led by Canadian and Israeli investigators. The teams will be expected to integrate researchers from low- and middle-income countries (see Appendix A for list of eligible countries) to further their scientific capacity. In their capacity as collaborators or trainees, researchers in eligible countries will contribute to and benefit from their involvement in the Initiative.

Teams are encouraged to integrate sex and gender perspectives into their research, including where relevant Sex- and Gender-Based Analysis (SGBA). SGBA is an approach that systematically examines sex-based (biological) and gender-based (socio-cultural) differences, to promote rigorous science that is sensitive to sex and gender, and has the potential to expand our understanding of health determinants for all people. See Additional Information WSC Note: #moreinformation for more details.

Research Areas

The fifth call of this program supports biomedical sciences with special emphasis on new frontiers in metabolism in health and disease. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Cellular and molecular basis of metabolic diseases
  • Pathophysiology of metabolic response associated with infectious diseases
  • Prevention of metabolic diseases
  • Microbiome and metabolism
  • Inflammation and metabolism
  • Circadian rhythms and metabolism
  • Prevention and metabolism
  • Lipid, amino acid, and sugar metabolism
  • Hormonal regulation of metabolism
  • Epigenetics and metabolism
  • Aging and metabolism
  • Exercise metabolism
  • Novel biomarker technologies for metabolites
  • Models for metabolic research

Additional program details are available on CIHR’s website.
