Clinician-Scientist Award Projects
The MOHCCN Clinician-Scientist Award provides outstanding early-career clinician-scientists with funding to support high-quality research in precision oncology. The award is designed to support early-career investigators as they develop their careers as independent clinician scientists, in close collaboration and mentorship with established MOHCCN-funded teams. The final awardees were selected after a peer-review committee reviewed the 13 full applications received from clinician-scientists across Canada.
In addition to new funding, the researchers will have access to expertise, data and resources generated by the Network. In turn, they will contribute knowledge and data from their projects to the Network, helping to accelerate the implementation of precision medicine for cancer in Canada.
