Support and Funding
Can-SOLVE CKD is one of 5 chronic disease networks funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research via the Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research. Funding is also provided by 30+ partners, including provincial kidney care agencies, universities, industry, and private donors. Can-SOLVE CKD has funded 18 patient-centered research projects (including ours) spanning basic science, clinical and population health research.
The purpose of the Allied Health Kidney Research Grant is to encourage allied health professionals to pursue research relevant to the areas of nephrology and organ donation, including clinical, health services, social, cultural, environmental and population health research.
The Project Grant program is designed to capture ideas with the greatest potential to advance health-related fundamental or applied knowledge, health research, health care, health systems, and/or health outcomes. It supports projects with a specific purpose and a defined endpoint. The best ideas may stem from new, incremental, innovative, and/or high-risk lines of inquiry or knowledge translation approaches.
