TORONTO, April 2 /CNW/ - The Ontario Association of Medical Laboratories
is pleased to announce its 2009 Small Grants Program to support
non-proprietary research projects to improve the efficiency or effectiveness
of the delivery of laboratory services. Previously funded projects have
included research into new testing methodologies, information systems and
improvements to operational systems.
Individual grants to a maximum of $35,000.00 may be awarded to support
laboratory services research, evaluation or demonstration projects in Ontario.
This year the program has $70,000.00 to be awarded.
The program represents the commitment of Ontario's community-based
medical laboratories to ensure that Ontario's laboratory services remain among
the best in the world. Since the program began in 1997, the OAML has awarded
more than $800,000 to support 34 separate research projects.
The program specifically focuses on non-proprietary projects to encourage
the widest possible dissemination of research results. People working in
community-based laboratories, hospitals and academic settings are encouraged
to apply. Applications from graduate students working in laboratory-related
fields will be considered.
Any public or private entity or any individual engaged in non-proprietary
research in Ontario may apply for a grant.
