Focus on Stroke Personnel Awards 2011


The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, the Canadian Stroke Network, and the CIHR Institute of Aging and Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health are pleased to launch the tenth instalment of Focus on Stroke.

The emphasis of this strategic initiative is on building capacity in the later themes/pillars of stroke research (i.e., clinical, health services/policy, and/or population health research) and supporting research training of health professionals (e.g. nurses, occupational therapists, pharmacists, physiotherapists, speech therapists). 
Funding priority will be given to highly rated applicants whose research is 60% or more in the area of clinical, health services/policy, and/or population health research. While applications with a basic biomedical research focus are eligible for this competition, a limited amount of funds is available to support research in this area.
