CRAFTING A STRONG CLINICAL TRIAL APPLICATION FOR CIHR
November 6, 2014

There has been an increase in the number of researchers at the University of Manitoba who are submitting applications to CIHR involving clinical trials (CTs) and randomized controlled trials (RCTs).  The goal of this session is to support researchers who are applying to the CIHR Operating Grant competition and proposing to undertake a RCT or CT.  The presentations and discussion are intended to provide information and guidance on what makes a strong study and application (and related to this, what are common pitfalls in such applications), featuring experienced clinical scientists and members of CIHR peer review committees.

Come and participate in this discussion, with Dr. Ryan Zarychanski, Department of Internal Medicine, Sections of Hematology/Medical Oncology and Critical Care; Dr. Carolyn Snider, Department of Emergency Medicine; and Dr. Peter Jones, Director, Richardson Centre for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals.
