Lions’ Den Returns on the Hunt for Medical Innovation
SAINT JOHN, April 8, 2019 The Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation is bringing back a prestigious and top-of-class event supporting the ideas and dreams of our health care community. Lions’ Den 2020 will build on the goodwill and good work from two previous events that have resulted in more than $1,000,000 raised for medical advancements in New Brunswick.
The grant up for grabs this time around is valued up to $500,000.
The Foundation is now asking for ideas in innovation from Saint John Regional Hospital clinicians and/or non-profit organizations who work in partnership with the Saint John Regional Hospital. The initiative does not need to be conducted solely within the Saint John Area, however at least one member of the Project Team or Key Collaborator must be affiliated with the Saint John Regional Hospital. Students are not eligible to submit a Letter of Intent, but funds may be used for salaries for students, research coordinators and assistants.
The deadline for Letters of Intent is May 15, 2019.
These proposed initiatives will be evaluated and shortlisted. Those shortlisted may then be invited to submit a full application for consideration to participate in Lions’ Den 2020, at the Imperial Theatre in Saint John.
Lions’ Den 2020 will be an exhilarating, entertaining and informative night of showcasing the best minds in our province. Teams of medical professionals pitch their innovative ideas to a panel of business leaders, and these Lions of Industry will choose a winner.
For more information on how to submit your Letter of Intent, please download the package below.
