Grants to Canada medical researchers for research projects and activities that are focused on kidney disease. Applicants must complete a Letter of Intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to help cover some of the operating costs of research projects and may be used for the purchase of equipment, supplies, and materials and the payment of laboratory assistants.
The Kidney Foundation of Canada has established a national goal of encouraging and supporting research that may further the current knowledge pertaining to the kidney or improve health in areas relevant to the Vision and Mission of the Foundation.
Applicants are encouraged to think carefully about the primary theme classification for their grant. Please use the definitions below to determine which category to ascribe to your application:
Biomedical research is research with the goal of understanding normal and abnormal human functioning, at the molecular, cellular, organ system and whole body levels, including development of tools and techniques to be applied for this purpose; developing new therapies or devices that improve health or the quality of life of individuals, up to the point where they are tested on human subjects. Biomedical research may also include studies on human subjects that presently, do not have a diagnostic or therapeutic orientation.
For the purposes of this competition, Clinical Research encompasses(i) clinical research, (ii) health systems and services research and (iii) population and public health research.
Research that contains significant integrated contributions from both clinical and basic/biomedical, as defined above. Please note that research involving lesser degrees of overlap or inter-pillar collaboration does not automatically qualify as translational for the purposes of review: for example, basic research that includes work on samples from humans should be categorised as basic/biomedical; clinical studies that require collaborations from basic scientists for measurements of biomarkers should be categorised as clinical.

The grant application may not exceed the amount of $60,000 CAN per year.
One, two or three-year grants are available from The Kidney Foundation. The Kidney Foundation reserves the right to determine a shorter duration of award regardless of the initial request.

Funding for a two-year grant will become effective July 1 and run to June 30 of the second consecutive year. The Kidney Foundation will consider further renewals providing that progress on the work initially funded by The Kidney Foundation is clearly described in the application and the reasons justifying the need for renewal are explained. All renewal applications will be submitted for review and assessment on a competitive basis with all other grant applications.
Funding for a three-year grant will become effective July 1 and run to June 30 of the third consecutive year. Three-year grants can only be applied for by new investigators, i.e. within 36 months of their first faculty appointment. To be funded as a three-year grant the grant needs to be scored in the excellent to outstanding category by the Kidney Health Scientific Committee. A maximum of three (3) three-year grants for new investigators will be awarded each year. An applicant is only entitled to be awarded a three-year grant once.
