Banting-CANSSI Ontario Discovery Award
in Data Science


CANSSI Ontario and The Banting Research Foundation are pleased to announce two Banting-CANSSI Ontario Discovery Awards in Data Science. These new investigator awards are a one-year grant of up to $25,000 and are intended to support statistical or computational research related to a health or biomedical problem.

Discovery Awards from The Banting Research Foundation support young Canadian researchers who demonstrate excellence and creativity in health and biomedical science. In keeping with the mission of CANSSI Ontario, applicants to the Banting-CANSSI Ontario Discovery Awards in Data Science should be proposing new, innovative statistical or computational methodology, or proposing to implement existing methods in novel ways, to address a health or biomedical research question.

Applications will be accepted from new investigators appointed at Ontario Universities. One of the two awards is earmarked for a University of Toronto or affiliated research institute faculty member. Applications will be adjudicated on the basis of scientific excellence and innovation by The Banting Research Foundation Grant Review panel, and eligibility requirements and application instructions can be found here.
