The Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute in partnership with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research- Institute of Cancer Research (CIHR-ICR) will jointly fund this Innovation Grants program, specifically focused on prevention research.

The Principal Investigator must be based in, or formally affiliated with, an eligible Canadian Host Institution. Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research associates, Adjunct Professors or Status only appointments (except where they hold a firm academic position at another Canadian institution), technical support staff, or investigators based outside of Canada are not eligible to be a Principal Investigator. Both the Principal Investigator and executive authorities of the Host Institution are required to agree to the terms of the Host Institution/Canadian Cancer Society Agreement included as part of the application, thereby acknowledging and agreeing to all the responsibilities and obligations outlined in that Agreement.
