Cite us — we’ll “cite” you back!

Thirty-one new publications attributed to fifteen CBC Awards contribute to a total of 2496 publications that are the result of CBC-sponsored research to date

In mid-December 2019, we reported on the new CBC funding-attributed scientific publication published during September-October 2019. Since then, we have become aware of additional thirty-one new publications acknowledging CBC support. These publications are a result of CBC-sponsored research linked to fifteen CBC Awards: two Catalyst Awards, one Infrastructure, three Lever Awards, one Postdoctoral Research Award, five Recruitment Resources Fund Awards, two CBC Scholar Awards and one Spark. To date, 2496 research papers in total have been published as a result of CBC-funding!

Congratulations to all authors involved in the published research!
