All day

This Drucker Family Innovation Fund Grants is a joint funding program between the Banting & Best Diabetes Centre (BBDC) and the University Health Network/Mount Sinai Hospital Department of Medicine. Multiple grants will be awarded per year.

The program provides funding of up to $50,000 per application to enable eligible investigators to explore innovative research that may change the paradigm and reorient the field in a new direction. The emphasis of this grant is on INNOVATION. Applicants must demonstrate to reviewers that their proposal does not simply represent a logical extension of their existing research program.

Preference will be given to high risk innovative proposals focused on diabetes and metabolism research; however, in the absence of meritorious applications in the area of diabetes and metabolism, submissions related to other areas of biomedical research will be considered.

Applications must be received by 4 p.m., April 20, 2021. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
