The deadline to receive an LOI REVIEW from Research Services is June 12, 2019. Reviews are optional, but are recommended. Note that the 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 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 Research Services, please email a Research Project Advisor your LOI documents no later than October June 12, 2019.  Please remember that the closer your application is to complete, the more useful the review process will be. LOIs will be reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

  • Your application must be submitted using ResearchNet . When you submit your LOI it will be sent directly to CIHR, not URS.
  • A TRAQ DSS is NOT required at the LOI stage (only the application stage). URS is NOT required to sign the CIHR signature page at the LOI stage.
