Access to CHILD data has been the basis of many successful grant competitions.

Two successful applications to the CIHR’s Canadian Microbiome Initiative were based on access to CHILD fecal material and clinical data. The Study constitutes a focal point for numerous other studies undertaken by investigators across Canada, including in CIHR Signature Initiatives undertaken by various Institutes. Successes in these highly-competitive research environments illustrate the growing value of the longitudinal clinical and biological data emerging from CHILD.

In addition, international applications based on access to CHILD biological samples and data are in preparation or have recently been submitted to the National Institutes of Health (US) in collaboration with CHILD investigators.

The database below lists grants awarded that leverage data and/or samples from the CHILD Study.
