Internal Deadline: GlycoNet Cycle II

The Canadian Glycomics Network (GlycoNet) is a Network of Centres of Excellence that focuses on the role of glycans (carbohydrates) in health. Areas of focus for GlycoNet in Cycle II (2020–2025) are antimicrobials, chronic diseases (including diabetes & obesity), neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer. Additional information about Network research can be found on their website.

Funding Available

All projects must be completed within 2 years (24 months). Projects will be funded up to a maximum of $200,000/year and require 1:1 matching as outlined above. Therefore, the total project budget with GlycoNet funding and matching contributions would be a maximum of $400,000/year. Projects requesting less than the maximum amount will be considered. GlycoNet anticipates approving up to 12 proposals (ongoing and new) in the Cycle II application. Ongoing projects that wish to submit a proposal must apply and show clear evolution of the project towards translation.


Based on NCE requirements, this opportunity is open only to individuals who are eligible to hold Tri-Council funds; CIHR, NSERC or SSHRC. Furthermore, GlycoNet requires that all investigators receiving Network funding must have other peer-reviewed support. Such support need not be from the Tri-Council.
