Clinical Research Fund

The Clinical Research Fund (CRF) is a joint partnership between the Cumming School of Medicine (CSM) and Alberta Health Services (AHS), designed to provide funding to support high-impact research and promote the objectives of AHS’ strategy for research innovation and analytics.  

The CRF provides funding to University of Calgary clinical researchers in the form of pre-submission, seed and major grants, focusing on three primary goals: 

  • to increase the number of high-impact, University of Calgary-led clinical research studies; 
  • to increase the university’s success in attracting Tri-Council funding for clinical studies; and
  • to improve both the Alberta health system and the health of Albertans.
