The Department of Biotechnology’s mandate is to promote innovative research and development activities across the country and take up initiatives for translational interdisciplinary research that cross the agency’s and countries boundaries. This aligns with the CIHR’s interest in an international initiative to support healthy growth and development. The Department will fund Indian researchers through funds received from the Ministry of Science and Technology.
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) has a Roadmap Accelerator Fund (RAF) that is intended to support transformative and impactful research that aligns with CIHR’s Research Priorities and is multi-disciplinary in nature. Scientific leadership and support for this RAF-funded initiative is shared across CIHR’s Institute of Aboriginal People’s Health, Institute of Gender and Health, Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health, Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction and Institute of Population and Public Health.
