CIHR 2014-15 Transitional Operating Grant: Internal Review Timelines

The Dean has now circulated the timelines for submission of CIHR grants for the March 2, 2015 competition and as usual there is a mandatory internal review required. You are strongly advised to start preparing your grant application NOW and submit it for internal review as early as possible!

*NEW*: A new CV template has been implemented for the TOOGP competition and is now available through the Common CV. It will replace the CIHR Academic CV. This template, the Transitional OOGP Biosketch, is shorter than the current Academic CV and streamlines the information provided to peer reviewers for the review process. For full details, please refer to the Biosketch Quick Reference Guide. Allow ample time to update your CV for this format.
