Canada First Research Excellence Fund's investment of $150 million in McGill University's Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) and Western University's BrainsCAN marks a pivotal step that will unlock the mysteries of the human mind and lay the groundwork for a pan-Canadian network of collaboration that promises to uncover new ways to treat, prevent and cure brain disorders.
McGill and Western University have developed the McGill-Western Collaboration Grant Program to support impactful research that leverages this unique HBHL and BrainsCAN collaboration.
These grants are designed to potentiate cross-institution, multidisciplinary teams of HBHL and BrainsCAN researchers. They will support:
- transformational research in neuroscience and neuroinformatics
- new and established collaborative teams
- all project types (discovery-based science to end-user translational research) and sizes (smaller foundation projects to multi-year programs)
