For some funding programs, the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry runs an internal competition (e.g. CFI, Networks of Centres of Excellence). In this case, comprehensive support from the Major Grants Team is linked to the outcome of the internal competition. That is, we focus on the top-ranked proposals that are best positioned for success, where extra support can be decisive.
For funding programs without a formal internal process, we focus on supporting excellent teams whose projects are aligned with Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry priorities, particularly those with support from one or more Institutes.
The right time to contact us
is when you have a great idea for a large project and an excellent core team in place.
