Since 1952, the cardiovascular death rate in Canada has declined by more than 75 per cent - and nearly 40 per cent in the last decade - largely due to research advances in surgical procedures, drug therapies and prevention efforts.
This section provides an overview of Canadian funding opportunities and their application deadlines that are relevant to researchers in arrhythmia and stroke.
Through this initiative, the Heart and Stroke Foundation and partners will provide establishment grant funds towards the successful career launch of emerging research leaders in the cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and/or respiratory health research domains. C-SPIN will support successful applicants that are connected to an established C-SPIN project or research platform.
Initiative details can be found here Emerging Research Leaders Initiative 2016.
Will provide recognition and salary support to outstanding Canadian atrial fibrillation or stroke researchers (including physicians, nurses, and non-clinical trainees) early in their careers, and provide a reliable supply of future Canadian leaders in this field. To achieve this objective the Fellowship will provide bridge funding for a final academic training year and/or support for faculty members within the first 5 years of an appointment to a Canadian university. The C-SPIN-BAYER Fellows will be exceptional candidates who will become leaders in academic medicine in Canada.
The C-SPIN fellowship will be awarded to individuals who have completed or are near completing a post graduate degree. There will be a clear commitment to provide a minimum of 50% protected time for research endeavours. The fellowship will provide $60,000.00 annually for 2 years.
Status: Grant recipients announced for 2015.
Canadian Stroke Prevention Intervention Network (C-SPIN) is committed to support clinical scientists in the field of stroke prevention. C-SPIN Pilot Grants will provide operating funds to Canadian atrial fibrillation or stroke researchers to fund pilot projects.
