CIHR Catalyst Grant: Personalized Health Catalyst Grants

The CIHR developed the CIHR Catalyst Grant: Personalized Health Catalyst Grants as part of a transformative series of catalyst grants with personalized health at their core. These catalyst grants aim to improve personalized health through three identified priority areas:

  • the development of novel e-Health apps to improve patient empowerment and shared decision making;
  • the development of predictive analytic models that can stratify patients by expected outcome and risk; and
  • the mining of existing databases to identify sex-drug-gene interactions.

The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $8,200,000, enough to fund approximately 41 grants. The maximum amount per grant is $100,000 per year for up to 2 years for a total of $200,000, per grant.
