Funding Opportunities

University Hospital Foundation Medical Research Competition (UHFMRC)


About the UHFMRC

This competition provides one-year research operating grants for up to $35,000 to fund innovative, translational research for clinician scientists in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry. Although applications in all areas of biomedical, clinical, health services and outcomes research are acceptable, a clear linkage to clinical problems in adults is required. 

  • The University Hospital Foundation encourages applications from new investigators (those within five years of their first academic appointment). It is expected that project funding will form the basis for subsequent and simultaneous applications for peer-reviewed external funding (e.g. CIHR). Projects currently funded by another source will be given lower priority.
  • Established investigators may apply but are especially encouraged to participate in projects as co-investigator(s)/collaborator(s) with new investigators.
