Dear Lakehead University Researcher:

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is planning another round of discussions with institutions across Canada on their new Suite of Programs and peer review processes between December 2014 and spring of 2015.

These meetings, with senior administrators from CIHR, will include a town hall forum with senior administrators that will also be open to all health researchers and research administrators.  The town hall discussion will provide an update on CIHR's program reforms, including information on the College of Reviewers.  Lakehead's session will be held April 14, 2015 from 9am to 11am in ATAC 3004.  Orillia faculty members can participate in OA 3041.

As this session will provide important updates to CIHR's program architecture, I encourage all researchers who conduct health-related research to attend this session.  Please notify Andrew Hacquoil, Research Grants Officer, at ahacquo1@lakheadu.ca by April 7, 2015 if you plan on attending this session.

Andrew P. Dean
Interim Vice-President (Research, Economic Development and Innovation)
