Fall 2021 CIHR Project peer review support

In partnership with the deans, the VPRI Office is organizing an optional pilot peer review program for the Fall 2021 CIHR Project Grant competition. The goal of this program is to leverage SFU’s senior faculty experience with grant reviews and review committees to provide applicants with detailed written and “face-to-face” feedback to strengthen their proposals and support increased success rates. All researchers are welcome to submit, but there will be some number limits if the program is heavily subscribed. We will be working with your Faculty to match proposal topics with reviewers before the end of July. If you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, please submit a Notice of Intent by July 23. The deadline for submission of your 10-page draft proposal is August 3, 2021.
