Funding to support research related to COVID-19

WE-Spark Health Institute has launched a “rapid response” funding call for those that are currently working on COVID-19 related research.

As part of a new Igniting Discovery Grants Program, this COVID-19 Rapid Response Grant is open to the four WE-Spark partner institutions: University of Windsor, St. Clair College, Windsor Regional Hospital, and Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare.

“This specific Igniting Discovery Grant opportunity is a part of WE-Spark’s collective effort to locally address the public health challenges of COVID-19 outbreak,” said executive director Lisa Porter. “The funding will contribute to efforts to accelerate the development, testing, and implementation of medical and social countermeasures to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak.”

Applications are due by 5 p.m. Friday, April 10. Funding decisions will be made no later than the end of April. For more information, visit WE-Spark Health Institute / Igniting Discovery Grants.
