The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) has launched a call for nominations to fill 13 advisory boards that inform the strategy and funding activities for CIHR’s 13 institutes. Currently, 8 of 13 advisory boards have no representation from UBC. This is a missed opportunity for UBC researchers to have their voices heard at CIHR and engage with the national research community. The 8 boards with no UBC representation are:
- Aboriginal Peoples’ Health
- Cancer Research
- Circulatory and Respiratory Health (recruiting specifically for the following: sleep, respiratory health, critical care, prevention/public health, early career investigators)
- Gender and Health
- Infection and Immunity
- Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis
- Population and Public Health (special need for UBC faculty)
The deadline to apply is April 9, 2018. You can find more information about this opportunity here.
Please contact Dr. Heather Frost at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to apply and/or have any questions.
