Training at III

New Investigators Forum

Health research training is a core priority for CIHR. Success in research training requires collaboration of all training stakeholders. Researchers, clinicians and decision makers share a common interest in the health of Canadians and a responsibility related to research training.

The CIHR Institute of Infection and Immunity recognizes that the ongoing development of new researchers is fundamental to a strong and innovative health research capacity within the Institute's mandate. The New Investigators Forum seeks to initiate a dialogue with infection and immunity related investigators in the early stages of their research careers and provide additional information and tools to enhance their success.

The Bhagirath Singh Early Career Award in Infection and Immunity

This award was established in 2010 to honor the outstanding work of Dr. Bhagirath Singh, inaugural Scientific Director of the CIHR Institute of Infection and Immunity (III). To recognize the excellence of health research being done in Canada, a prize of $25,000 will be awarded annually to the highest ranked new investigator in the field of infection and immunity between the Spring or Fall Project Grant competitions. This award is a supplemental grant to support research, and has to be used according to CIHR policy for Grants and Awards. The award is not a personal award and is non-renewable.
