The Clinical & Translational Research Seed Grant has been developed to support clinical and translational research projects taking place on the Oak Street Campus (BC Children's Hospital or BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre) by promoting research collaborations between postdoctoral fellows and clinical trainees, physicians, or other health professionals. The intent is to support well-defined research projects that may not otherwise receive funding, foster new areas of research, enhance research partnerships, and build leadership capacity for both research and clinical trainees.

Eligibility Criteria

Each Clinical & Translational Research Seed Grant application must include (1) one postdoctoral fellow and (2) one clinical resident, fellow, new physician, or other health professional based at either BC Children's Hospital or BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre.
