Research Funding

Keeping research on track

Since 2006, the Department of Surgery (DOS) Research Office has been making it possible for our surgical divisions to pursue meaningful work. 

The Research Office is responsible for stewarding monies from the Department of Surgery to help foster research growth, to create collaborations, to mentor new faculty, and to help maintain established research projects. 

Each academic year the DOS Research Committee sends a call for to Faculty to apply/submit an applicaiton for certain grants - see schedule below. All grants are reviewed and ranked by the Committee, with the top submission(s) being awarded funding.

Working within our annual budget we have earmarked funds for each grant call.  

Please see our standard operating process for grant submission decision making, and further review our grading criteria here.

The Dal Surgery Research Office fosters research from departmental peer review funding possibilities. Many other agencies work in tandem with us, through collaborative research done by our members and affiliated personnel, and also through potential shared support for research. It is important to familiarize yourself with the dynamic players in our environment and the larger funding bodies both local and national we should work towards applying for.
