ISRP Project Selection Criteria

Successful projects will be selected based on the following criteria:

  1. The quality of the hypothesis, strength of the preliminary data and the potential impact the probe or associated technology will have on health care delivery and outcomes.
  2. The extent to which the proposed project contributes to the Centre. This implies that each project must address the specific deliverables and the commercial aims of CPDC.
    1. To validate, translate and commercialize innovative imaging probes and associated technologies emerging from academic labs and research centres in internationally;
    2. To provide the means to obtain regulatory approval for molecular probes and to increase the number of agents entering trials for clinical and drug development studies; and
    3. To attract investment in probe development to Ontario.
  3. The project demonstrates the importance of probe development for the economy of Canada and the health and well-being of Canadians, key requirements of the Networks of Centres of Excellence CECR program.
  4. The proposed project makes efficient and appropriate use of the Centre’s resources and expertise.
  5. There are measurable milestones to be completed within the proposed period of the project.

Funding allocations:

  • Approved projects should seek additional funding to support research activities beyond CPDC’s involvement (based on the Centre’s services), which is limited to a maximum of two years.
  • Applicants must demonstrate they are working on securing additional funding for commercialization during the first year of the project.
  • Project budgets may be increased to promote team proposals, involving multiple researchers and industrial partners particularly when multiple sites are involved.
