Funding Opportunities

Hamilton Health Sciences Health Professional Investigator Operating Grant

by Nicole Gervais | Jun 20, 2017

Funding Available:  up to $15,000 per grant, three grants available for a one-year term.

The Health Professional Investigator (HPI) Operating Grant provides project funding to non-physician principal investigators (PI) who are HHS-employed healthcare professionals. Inter-professional teams, which include physicians, are encouraged, but physicians are not eligible to apply as lead PI for this grant. The HPI Operating Grant is for research initiatives directly relevant to the clinical mission and priorities of HHS (Patients, People, Sustainability, Innovation and Learning). The grant objective is to provide support for pilot studies or research projects that have the potential to lead to larger projects and the possibility of external funding. The HPI Operating Grant offers an opportunity to foster and support a culture of inquiry for early investigators under the mentorship of experienced researchers. Priority areas for funding include the following:

  • Consistent with, and likely to enhance, the main clinical programs at HHS;
  • Multidisciplinary and collaborative (involving more than one clinical area or healthcare profession);
  • Advances and creates new knowledge that informs patient care;
  • Conduct of pilot or feasibility studies which could facilitate obtaining additional funding through independent peer review or other mechanisms;
  • Commitment to dissemination of research findings both internally and externally. Publication of results is an expectation

Deadline: October 28, 2017
