King’s faculty engaged in health research are now eligible to apply for Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) grants, due to a new agreement between CIHR and King’s University College. For the first time, King’s will be able to administer CIHR grants.

“This allows us to better support and encourage innovative, impactful research from our faculty who are engaged in health research,” says Dr. Laura Melnyk Gribble, Associate Dean, Academic & Research.

King’s has long been able to administer Social Sciences and Humanities Research (SSHRC) grants, and our faculty have enjoyed success with SSHRC funding, with five proposals awarded funding in the last round. 

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is Canada's federal funding agency for health research. Composed of 13 Institutes, CIHR collaborate with partners and researchers to support the discoveries and innovations that improve health and strengthen Canada’s health care system.
