Ted Rogers Research - Innovation Fund Strategic Grants Competition Deadline: July 21

Jun 23, 2017

Innovation Fund

Our Innovation Fund guides the discovery and development of novel therapies and approaches to treating heart failure. It includes both strategic grants and seed grants — see below for more, including any current competitions.

By supporting bench research, proof-of-concept development and the clinical assessment of new diagnostics, therapeutics and technologies, this fund plays a vital role in getting great ideas off the ground and enabling our researchers to attract additional support and momentum for moving their innovations into the clinical and commercial spheres.

Investigators must demonstrate they are leveraging and developing the very best ideas, technologies and methodologies available. Awarded projects have the greatest potential to transform cardiac care, and involve at least 2 of the Centre’s 3 partner institutions. (Any partners worldwide may be co-applicants.)

The Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research is now accepting submissions for its first-ever strategic grants, which provide funding of up to $1 million over 3 years for transformative research projects focused on discovery, development and implementation of next-generation approaches and therapies to address heart failure.
