Well-being, Health and Biomedical Discovery


Academic Unit: inquire with unit

Memorial Deadline: RIS review not required for registration

External Deadline: Thursday 30th, November 2023


Heart & Stroke, along with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research-Institute of Gender and Health (IGH), is excited to announce the launch of a NEW funding competition, the Research Networks of Excellence in Women’s Heart and/or Brain Health. This funding competition will support the development of two (2) new research networks in Canada, dedicated to women’s heart and/or brain health. The registration deadline is November 30, 2023. Eligible registrants will have until April 18, 2024 to submit their full application.

The Research Networks of Excellence will focus on one of two Priority Research Areas related to women’s heart and/or brain health: (1) Risk Factors; or (2) Diagnosis & Treatment. This funding opportunity will bring together interdisciplinary, multi-institutional and multi-provincial health research teams with multiple collaborators (e.g., researchers, clinicians, people with lived and living experience (PWLLE) navigating women’s heart and/or brain health, health care providers, Indigenous Elders or Knowledge Keepers, government, policy makers, not-for-profit organizations, and industry). Together they will strive to create and mobilize knowledge that improves the health and wellness of women at risk of or living with heart and/or brain conditions, as well as their families and caregivers. The Research Networks of Excellence are expected to build on pre-existing areas of research where there is proven track record among the team of demonstrated leadership and research excellence around the Priority Research Area.
