Cite us — we’ll “cite” you back!

Twenty-three recent publications attributed to eighteen CBC Awards contribute to a total of 2463 publications that are the result of CBC-sponsored research to date

In our latest Newsletter, published on October 29, we reported on the new CBC funding-attributed scientific publication published during September-October 2019. Since then, twenty-three new publications have been published acknowledging CBC support. These publications are a result of CBC-sponsored research linked to nineteen CBC Awards: two Recruitment Resources Fund Awards, two Lever Awards, one Spark, ten Catalysts, two Postdoctoral Research Awards and one CBC Scholar Award. To date, 2463 research papers in total have been published as a result of CBC funding!

Congratulations to all authors involved in the published research!

Congratulations to all CBC awardees and community members who have recently (Oct.-Dec. 2019) published the results of their CBC-sponsored research:
