As an undergraduate who has worked with a clinician scientist on a research project since second year, I've gotten to become quite involved in the particular project. One thing I've been a part of has been the application for CIHR grants - two successful applications. Officially, in the grant application and the information available upon a search in the CIHR funding database, I have been listed as a co-Investigator in one and co-Principal Investigator in the other.
Can this go into my OMSAS application and if so, where? Awards? OMSAS officially says "do no list your funding received by your supervisor" however in the grants awarded my designation has been co-principal applicant/co-principal investigator (in the first grant) and or co-applicant/co-investigator (in the second grant). Additionally, I believe there is a section within the funding database entries that that lists "supervisor" however no entry was made .. I'm assuming this also supports that in terms of the grant awards, as far as CIHR is concerned, I am not considered a supervised student.
Any thoughts? I'd very much like to include these in my application as I have contributed significantly to the project from conception to the launching of this project. Generally, I feel as though I have not quite been a traditional undergraduate research student with this project (as I am within a basic science research lab that I'm doing my UG thesis in) and have been involved to a greater degree (i.e. more of a co-investigator than a supervised student).
