Funding Opportunities

OICR offers a number of funding opportunities for Ontario researchers throughout the year to help enable world-class cancer research across the province.

OICR Innovation to Implementation Supplement The full application deadline has now passed for this funding opportunity

The Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR) is inviting applications for the Innovation to Implementation Supplement (I2IS), which is focused on overcoming barriers to the mobilization, or uptake, of knowledge required to inform adoption of OICR research assets into policy or health care. OICR is committed to providing research funding to help support a sustainable health system that enables fair and equitable access to cancer interventions. I2IS is a supplement for OICR research projects supported within the last five years to move them from an experimental phase towards clinical use.

Window-of-Opportunity Network – Call for Concepts

The Window-of-Opportunity (WOO) Network is a collaboration between surgical, medical and radiation oncologists and Ontario’s cancer research community to conduct clinical trials in treatment-naive patients prior to cancer surgery. WOO trials are a powerful way to evaluate the effectiveness and mechanisms of action of potential anticancer therapies, to accelerate delivery of new treatments to patients. Investigators are invited to submit WOO trial concepts by February 7th, 2022, at 12 noon. Please refer to the Portfolio Concept Call and application form for more information.
