Last October, the Thyroid Foundation of Canada (TFC) signed an agreement with the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism (CSEM) to manage our research grants.  This March, the Thyroid Foundation of Canada Research Award was announced on the CSEM website (see  It specified that “an award of $50,000 per year for 2 years will be granted to a researcher focused on thyroid disease. The grant may be extended for an additional year based on progress reports after 10 and 22 months which will be reviewed by the CSEM Awards Committee as well as the TFC.”  All researchers are encouraged to apply for the grant. The award will be presented to the selected thyroid researcher at the Annual Professional CSEM Conference in November 2021!
