Mini-grants of up to $10,000 are available annually to provide seed funding for pain research projects initiated by trainees registered at Western University or Lawson Health Research Institute.
Trainees include Medical Students, Residents, Fellows and Post-graduate students/fellows and must be sponsored by a member of the Faculty at Western or LHRI.
The grant deadlines are April 1 of each year.
Grant submissions will be up to 3 single space pages and will include introduction, rationale, methodology, significance of the project and budget. The CV of the Trainee and mini-CV of the sponsoring Faculty member should accompany the application. Applicants will indicate if this project has already started and will declare any other research funding available or submitted for this project.
Adjudication panel will be made up of members of the Western Pain Research Scientific Advisory Board.
Scoring will be modeled on the CIHR template (maximum score 5.0) – submissions that attain a score of 3.5 but are not funded are allowed to be resubmitted one further time in a future competition.
A brief progress report will be required 6 months from the time of grant award and a final report will be required within one year of initiation of the study.
Grant applications should be sent to Dr Dwight Moulin, Earl Russell Chair Pain Medicine, Western University - firstname.lastname@example.org.
