Grant Application Criteria and Forms

The CLF is pleased to announce the 2016 research grant competition is now open.  

The Canadian Liver Foundation (CLF) is issuing a call for proposals for the following:

  • 1 Team Grant in Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC)
  • 1 Operating Grant
  • 3 Graduate Studentships
  • 10 Summer Studentship

*NEW* Team Grant in Hepatocellular Carcinoma

The maximum amount available from the CLF is $600,000 (non-renewable) payable quarterly over three years. All proposals will be considered, but preference will be given to research that may lead to a treatment.

To maximize potential outcomes from this team grant and to foster a collaborative HCC research environment in Canada, preference will be given to those who present potential for matching funds from other sources. The research to be funded by CLF must be able to stand on its own if matching funds are not secured.  The component that might be funded by another source should be related to the component that is funded by the CLF.  This component need not run simultaneously with the component funded by CLF, but can be initiated at a later stage.

NOTE: One potential source of matching funds you may want to investigate is BioCanRx, a newly-created Network of Centres of Excellence dedicated to cancer research. BioCanRx has expressed interest to the CLF of receiving HCC research applications that meet their mandate to bring partners together in order to accelerate the translation of world-class cancer immunotherapies from the lab to the clinic. To learn more about the BioCanRx mandate, research program and application process, visit www.biocanrx.com. To maximize potential for possible matching funds from BioCanRx, researchers are strongly encouraged to consult with Dr. Kelley Parato, BioCanRx Director of Scientific Affairs. 

The CLF review process

All applications will be vetted initially by the CLF for suitability.  Suitable applications will be reviewed by the Research Committee of the Canadian Association for Study of the Liver.

If there are no applications of sufficient merit, no grant will be awarded and the competition will be repeated next year.
