2 Fonds de Recherche de Québec – Santé Research Scholars – Junior 1 and 2, Senior
3 Programs: Research Scholars – Junior 1, Junior 2, Seniors Clinical Research Scholars – Junior 1, Junior 2, Seniors Deadlines: Letter of Intent deadline: August 22, 2014 Application deadline: October 1, 2014
4 To facilitate the recruitment of qualified researchers who would like to begin or continue an independent career in health research. To promote continuity in health research in Quebec and ensure that high-caliber scientists are available to meet the needs of universities, hospitals and industries. OBJECTIVES
5 Basic science Basic biological mechanisms of health at the molecular, cellular, tissue and integrative levels, including all research that uses intact animal organisms or their cellular components, cellular descendants, or human cells and tissues. Research that involves the participation of human subjects is included under this heading as long as it involves basic mechanisms. Clinical and epidemiological science All biological, medical and epidemiological research that involves the participation of human subjects. Health and society Individual, social and cultural factors and interactions among them that are linked to health status or behaviors. There are many social and cultural factors that are relevant to health: the organization and provision of health care, social and health-care policy, education, economics and employment, the media, ethical issues, the environment in which we live, and so on. It is possible to combine two areas of research; for example, basic science and clinical and epidemiological science may intersect in research projects that involve human subjects. THREE RESEARCH AREAS

To hold a professional degree in the health sciences at the doctoral level (MD, DDS, etc.), and have completed at least two continuous years of additional research training, with at least 75% of their time devoted to research.
