National Team Development Grants (Osteoarthritis and Chronic Pain) and Emerging Team Grant (Rehab after COVID-19)
On behalf of the Canadian MSK Rehab Research Network’s Executive Committee, we are pleased to launch two new funding opportunities.
Over our first four years of operations the MSK Rehab Research Network supported a total of 23 projects; an investment of over $200,000 in high impact pilot projects.
These new opportunities mark the first round of competitions in our new CIHR funding structure and are therefore being offered as Team Development and Emerging Team Grants with substantially higher funding available.
