The first CPAS Scientific Research Starter Grant is intended to advance the field of pediatric anesthesia by supporting a Canadian anesthesiologist investigator. This two-year grant provides starter funding to further scientific inquiry and clinical knowledge in the field of pediatric anesthesiology. Preference will be given to junior or mid-career faculty who will be advised by an experienced mentor(s). It is anticipated that the funded study will generate results that can be used as pilot data or preliminary findings to support future grant applications focused on methods to improve safety and promote outcomes in pediatric anesthesia. It is expected that all applicants will be members of CPAS and will recognize CPAS support in future presentations and publications.
