CIHR invests $28M to support underrepresented early career health researchers


The Canadian Institutes of Health Research and its partners are investing $28.4M to support 43 underrepresented early career health researchers. The Research Excellence, Diversity and Independent Early Career Transition Award aims to support the work of Black people and racialized women as they transition into independent academic research positions. Recipients of this year’s award focus on a number of topics in health, including infectious and chronic disease, brain and mental health, and aging. Several of the researchers work at Canadian postsecondary institutions, with multiple awardees hosted at McGill University, McMaster University, University of British Columbia, University of Calgary, University of Manitoba, University of Toronto, and York University.
