Health Professionals Research Grants

Grants are awarded to health care professionals within McMaster Children's Hospital for projects that impact the health and healthcare of children.

The Health Professional Investigator (HPI) Operating Grant provides project funding to principal investigators (PI) who are HHS-employed healthcare professionals. Interprofessional teams, which include physicians are encouraged, but physicians are not eligible as PI.

The grant objective is to provide support for pilot studies or research projects that have the potential to lead to expanded projects and the possibility of external funding.

The HPI Operating Grant offers an opportunity to foster and support a culture of inquiry for novice investigators under the mentorship of experienced researchers.
