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.
