Gender and Sex Determinants of Circulatory and Respiratory Health: Interdisciplinary Capacity Enhancement (ICE) Teams Grant Program

What is an ICE team?

The essence of the Interdisciplinary Capacity Enhancement (ICE) Team grants is to provide support for new or existing groups who can demonstrate that they are committed to engendering a trans-disciplinary research culture and to attracting into, engaging and mentoring junior researchers (faculty and post-doctoral fellows not otherwise funded) or established researchers who have not worked extensively in health research in the past, within teams or networks working on themes that align with the priorities identified by the Institutes.

What is GENESIS?

Gender and Sex Determinants of Cardiovascular Disease: From Bench to Beyond (GENESIS)

GENESIS is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.

What do we do?

Through the creation of a team of basic science, clinical epidemiological, Juvederm in Toronto and health services researchers, GENESIS is investigating the sex and gender determinants for the development, presentation, process of care and outcome of cardiovascular disease (CVD) where "gender" determinants are behavioral and environmental factors and "sex" determinants are biological and genetic factors.

In order to achieve conceptual and methodological advancements and in the examination of gender and sex determinants of CVD, 5 pilot projects promote intra- and inter-institutional networking, collaborating and mentoring among Canadian researchers, increase the participation of young investigators who are taking on GENESIS related research projects, and build capacity for knowledge translation by integrating routine knowledge translation plans into team activities. Future research directions of these pilot projects are the corner stone for several future large-scale projects, including a cohort of Canadian individuals and a randomized controlled trial enrolling Canadian women.
