Application and review processes for Disease Team grants were misaligned with the needs of applicants and reviewers.
Our project addresses a problem in the Ontario Institute of Regenerative Medicine’s (OIRM’s) evaluation of Disease Team grant proposals. Applicants preparing for clinical trials were often unaware of their project’s place in the Disease Team funding spectrum. Further, reviewers found it challenging to convey their feedback in a succinct, tailored manner, given the wide variety of proposals they receive.
