Posted on Wednesday, November 25, 2020

The Faculty of Medicine, together with the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, Bruyère Research Institute, and Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, are pleased to announce the successful applicants of the Translational Research Grant (TRG) competition.

Translational research coordinates the application of novel discoveries in biological sciences to practical uses in pharmaceutical or clinical settings. The TRG program promotes such research and collaboration between basic scientists and clinical researchers throughout the Faculty, providing seed funding to test new, innovative ideas and facilitating future grant support.

Basic scientists and clinicians teamed up to submit joint applications as co-PIs on specific research projects. Each grant, up to $50K to be used over one to two years, is made up of matching funds from each partner: the basic science department or research institute, and the clinical department.
