Transform Heart Failure 2023 Trainee Award now open

TRANSFORM HF’s Trainee Awards support UofT Master’s, PhD, and Postdoctoral students who are working to improve the lived experience of heart failure through research centred around health equity, co-creation and ideation, digital health, and machine learning and AI.

Student research should:

  • Focus on new approaches and models of care to address heart failure and inequities in care. Specifically, research that explores how technological advances in digital health (e.g. remote monitoring and consultation; wearables and remote diagnostic sensors/testing), machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI) might enable proactive, personalized, and decentralized solutions that empower patients to become more active in their own health.  
  • Seek to co-create with patient or community partners to arrive at potential solutions that respond to the realities of lived experience in a manner of mutual respect and understanding towards all parties involved. 
  • Explore these approaches through the lenses of basic science, clinical practice, data science and AI, Indigenous health, lived experience, health systems, and/or policy change. More than one lens must be applied, and applicants must focus on the translational aspects of their research activities. 

Award levels are set at $18,000/year for Master’s/PhD trainees and $40,000/year for Postdoctoral fellows, running from September 1, 2023–August 31, 2024.

Up to three awards will be reserved for Indigenous graduate students or graduate students from underrepresented student populations. 

The deadline to apply is March 17, 2023. More information is available on the Transform Heart Failure website.
