Team Grant : Preparation to Trial: Inflammation for Chronic Conditions

Building on the shared framework for inflammation research initiated through prior CIHR investments (HCCI Phase 1), HCCI2 is comprised of two distinct funding opportunities that together will accelerate the clinical translation of solutions that target shared pathways of inflammation in chronic conditions.

  1. The first component of the HCCI2 initiative, the Preparation to Trial Funding Opportunity, will support the advancement of preclinical research towards the human intervention trial stage and/or a better understanding of the implementation context to enable the scale up of existing interventions.
  2. The second component (launch anticipated in 2022) will support human intervention trials with clinical impact on inflammation in chronic conditions.

Funds Available

  • The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $5,250,000, enough to fund approximately 7 grants. This amount may increase if additional funding partners participate. The maximum amount per grant is $250,000 per year for up to 3 years, for a total of $750,000 per grant.
