Stage 1 Review Process - University Research Services

The deadline to receive a FULL APPLICATION REVIEW from University Research Services is August 15, 2018. Note that the full application review is not a scientific review (i.e. a review undertaken by health sciences researchers). The review is performed by a Research Projects Advisor at University Research Services. The advisor will:

  • Perform a detailed reading and content review of your application (includes editing suggestions)
  • Send you detailed comments / feedback

If you would like to have your application reviewed by University Research Services, please send a penultimate draft to Kristina Arseneau (k.arseneau@queensu.ca) no later than August 15, 2018. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please remember that the closer your application is to complete, the more helpful the review process will be. 

The deadline to receive a 'MINI REVIEW' from University Research Services is September 10. In the mini review, a projects advisor will ensure that you application is complete and matches CIHR guidelines.

If you would like to have a mini review by University Research Services, please: 1) enter all of your application information in ResearchNet, 2) generate a PDF of the full application and, 3) send the PDF document to Kristina Arseneau (k.arseneau@queensu.ca) no later than September 10. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Stage 1 Submission Process - University Research Services / CIHR

  • This Funding Opportunity participates in the eApproval process. This means that when the applicant submits their application using ResearchNet, it will be electronically directed to the University Research Services for review and approval.  Once the applications are reviewed and approved, the administrators at University Research Services will submit the applications electronically to CIHR on behalf of the applicant.
  • PIs are NOT required to submit a TRAQ DSS at Stage 1 of the Foundation competition. TRAQ DSSs will only be required if the applicant is invited to Stage 2 of the competition.
