Banting Research Foundation grants for early-career investigators – deadline March 15

The Banting Research Foundation Discovery Award grants up to $25,000 to outstanding new investigators in all areas of health and biomedical research who are within the first three years of their independent appointment at a university or research institute in Canada. The intent is to provide seed funding so that applicants are able to gather pilot data to enhance their competitiveness for other sources of funding. This competition is open to new investigators at any Canadian university or affiliated research institute who will be within the first three years of the date of their first career academic appointment at the application deadline date of March 15, 2017.

See full guidelines here.

Some of our Discovery Awards are co-funded by other organizations. These partnered awards are in addition to our usual 5-6 awards granted each year. In 2017, funding partners include the Rick Hansen Institute, Dystonia Medical Research Foundation Canada, and the McLaughlin Foundation at the University of Toronto.

Applications for these partnered awards go through the same review process as all other applications for the Discovery Award, and are scored and ranked with the others. Only those rated in the fundable category (outstanding – 4.5-4.9; excellent – 4.0-4.4) will be considered for funding. Applicants must meet all eligibility requirements of our Discovery Award program (see guidelines), and, in addition, must show relevance to the partner organization’s areas of research focus. Keywords and clear statements about relevance in the application will be used to determine consideration for a partnered award. READ THE WHOLE STORY »

Banting Research Foundation/ McLaughlin Centre Discovery Award

The Banting Research Foundation and the University of Toronto McLaughlin Centre are pleased to announce a two-year funding partnership to support research by early career investigators focused on areas relevant to genomic medicine.

The goals of the McLaughlin Centre’s research program are to support new research projects in genomic medicine emphasizing excellence; to educate clinicians, scientists, and health care professionals in genomic medicine; to initiate and promote inter-institutional research activities between McLaughlin Centre partners; to build an enterprise of the highest international reputation and brand; and to ensure the Toronto health-research community leads Canada and the world in delivering 21st-century genomic medicine.

The Banting Research Foundation/ McLaughlin Centre Discovery Award is a one-year grant of up to $25,000 per year that will support research related to genomic medicine, defined as the diagnosis, prognosis, prevention and/or treatment of disease and disorders of the mind and body, using approaches informed by knowledge of the diploid genome and the molecules it encodes.

The Banting Research Foundation/ McLaughlin Centre Discovery Award will be awarded through the grant program of the Banting Research Foundation. Eligible applicants must be in the first three years of an academic appointment at the University of Toronto or its affiliated hospitals and their research institutes.

Banting Research Foundation Discovery Award supported by Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) Canada

The Banting Research Foundation and Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) Canada are pleased to announce a two-year funding partnership to support research by early career investigators focused on areas relevant to dystonia, a neurological movement disorder impacting more than 50,000 Canadians.

The goal of the DMRF Canada’s Science Program is to support the discovery of new or improved therapies and, ultimately, a cure for dystonia. To achieve this goal, the DMRF is dedicated to supporting the field of dystonia research and stimulating the collaborations and projects necessary to accelerate progress.

The Banting Research Foundation Discovery Award supported by DMRF Canada is a one-year grant of up to $25,000 per year that will support research related to the causes, mechanisms, prevention, and treatments which could potentially enable medical breakthroughs and transformative health care advances to find a cure for dystonia.

Eligible candidates must be focused on research that will address one or more of the core directions necessary to advance the field of dystonia. These core directions include furthering our fundamental understanding of dystonia, uncovering the mechanisms in the nervous system that lead to symptoms, creating experimental models of dystonia, and discovering targets for new and improved therapeutics designed specifically to treat dystonia. This includes hypothesis-driven research projects at the genetic, molecular, cellular, systems, or behavioral levels that may lead to a better understanding of the pathophysiology or to new therapies for any or all forms of dystonia.

The Banting Research Foundation Discovery Award supported by DMRF Canada will be awarded through the grant program of the Banting Research Foundation with input from the DMRF Medical Advisory Committee. Eligible applicants must be in the first three years of an academic appointment at a university or research institute in Canada. For complete guidelines and application instructions, see:
