Institute Advisory Boards (IAB)
Each of the CIHR's 13 Institutes has an advisory board composed of a diverse group of national and international representatives of the public, private and non-profit sectors, including the research community and health practitioners. Institute Advisory Boards (IABs) act in an advisory capacity to the Scientific Directors of the Institutes and to the Governing Council with respect to the full range of Institute activities. These activities include deliberation and evaluation on Institute health research priorities and strategies and implementation plans for engaging the broader research community.
IAB 2013 Renewal
CIHR will be launching the 11th cycle of IAB membership renewal. The on-line web application form for this cycle will be available on February 15, 2013 and the deadline for applying will be April 15, 2013. Application forms received after April 15, 2013 will be stored in the database and considered for the next renewal cycle.
During the selection process each Institute reviews the roster of candidates who submitted applications to determine which individuals would best fill the critical gaps created by turnover both in expertise and in re-balancing demographic criteria (gender, language, stage of career, and geographic and institutional representation). On average, each Institute appoints 1 to 2 members who will serve 3 year terms, effective September 1, 2013.
