The CSMB applauds the CIHR decision to adjudicate the Spring project competition

The Canadian Society for Molecular Biosciences (CSMB) is pleased by the recent decision of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to revert its initial canceling of the Spring 2020 Project Grant competition due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The CSMB and other voices from the Canadian research community have been arguing that in these uncertain times for people’s health more than ever, it is essential to maintain adequate funding for all aspects of biomedical research. The CIHR announced on May 28 that the applications submitted in March will finally be evaluated this summer.
