AllerGen and Canadian Respiratory Research Network (CRRN) partner to invest in grants for early career investigators

AllerGen will partner in the Emerging Research Leaders Initiative (ERLI)—an establishment grant program for researchers at the transition stage from post-doctoral fellow to early career professional in the areas of cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and/or respiratory health research. This multi-partnered initiative is led by the Canadian Lung Association and the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and includes organizational partners from non-profit, government, industry, and emerging / existing Networks of Centres of Excellence.

The grant, valued at $150,000 ($50,000 per year for three years), is intended to assist new investigators in establishing independent health research programs and achieving the research productivity necessary to obtain major funding from national and other external granting agencies. A successful CRRN applicant whose research aligns with AllerGen’s mission and research scope is eligible for additional funding of $12,000/year for the length of the award.
