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.
    • NB - There is a CIHR signature sheet that applicants need to download from ResearchNet, and then upload once completed (see step 7, application instructions). Only signatures from the applicant's SUPERVISOR(s) are required in this signature sheet.
  • FOR AWARDS THAT WILL BE HELD AT QUEEN's, the applicant's SUPERVISOR must submit a TRAQ DSS for this funding opportunity. Hospital-based researchers must submit their TRAQ DSS by October 11, 2018. Researchers who are not conducting Hospital-based research must submit their TRAQ DSS by October 25, 2018. All TRAQ DSS files must include a DRAFT copy of the trainee's proposal. TRAQ DSS files for Hospital-based research must also include the Hospital Departmental Information & Impact Form. For more information, please see the TRAQ resources section below.
    • NB - If needed, trainees can create the TRAQ DSS on behalf of their academic supervisor and, once it's created, switch the PI to their supervisor for submission (see page 17 of this guide). Only faculty have the ability to submit TRAQ DSSs.
