Patient-Oriented Research Team Assist Grants

As part of our commitment to facilitating research relationships between patients, researchers, healthcare providers, decision-makers, and other stakeholders, we are inviting applications for Patient-Oriented Research (POR) Team Assist grants. Team Assist grants are intended to fund planning and pre-grant activities to inform future patient-oriented research projects.

These grants will:

  • Facilitate the formation of multi-disciplinary POR research teams
  • Promote collaboration amongst stakeholders and remove barriers to engagement
  • Support patients to provide input on priorities for health research
  • Enable teams to submit strong POR applications to future competitions

In addition to planning and coordination of meetings, funds will be available for catering for an engagement opportunity or workshop; renting meeting space for public fora; and compensation of patient partners or physicians to attend brainstorming sessions. Team Assist grants cannot be used to fund teams that are not patient-oriented.
