All day

The McLaughlin Centre is pleased to announce the 2019 McLaughlin Centre Accelerator Grant CompetitionWhole Genome Data and Genetic Risk Scores. Building on the success of eight previous competitions, grants will be awarded for 1 year with up to $100,000 of funding from the McLaughlin Centre. More information and LOI forms can be found here.

The competition will be based on invited grant applications passing an initial letter of intent stage. Both steps will go through committee peer-review adjudicated by the Director.


Full grant applications will be a maximum of 10 pages including references. Priority will be given to applications demonstrating promise for near-term deliverables, potential to seed larger grants, and those involving two or more institutions from the University of Toronto Faculties (and their Departments and Institutes) and the hospitals/research institutes fully affiliated with the University of Toronto (TAHSN). 

Applications are due March 8, 2019. Successful applicants will be notified by April 19, 2019 and funding will start May 1, 2019.
