Foundation Competition Workshops

CIHR is undergoing significant changes to its open programs and associated peer review (see http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/44761.html). The Grant Assist Program (Health Sciences) [GAP-HS] is dedicated to supporting applicants as they navigate changes at CIHR, thus this folder includes PowerPoints and videos from CIHR visits to the University of Alberta and from GAP-HS developed workshops.
