Early Career Investigator (ECI) Program

Friday, November 1 – Saturday, November 2, 2019

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research – Institute of Cancer Research (CIHR-ICR) and Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR) are pleased to support the Early Career Investigator Program. 

This program has been developed for newly established principal investigators / new faculty members (within their first 5 years of academic appointment) at Canadian universities, including new scientists, clinician scientists and senior postdocs (within 6 months of completing their training).  The purpose of this program is to strengthen the professional development of junior faculty from the cancer research community. The meeting will run Friday evening and all day Saturday.

Eligibility and Awards:

Awardees will be selected based on eligibility with priority given to individuals that have not participated in previous New PI meetings.  Based on resource allocation we anticipate supporting up to 60 attendees.  Registration to the CCRC will be a requirement and awardees will be expected to attend the entire CCRC meeting (November 3-5, 2019).

Awardees will be notified if they are awarded an ECI award by July 15, 2019.  ECI awardees will be given special instructions for CCRC registration in their award letter.
