CQDM/Brain Canada Partnership funding program
“Focus on Brain”

The CQDM/Brain Canada Partnership’s “Focus on Brain” program is a major funding opportunity, which is open to multidisciplinary research teams linking Quebec and other Canadian researchers, and the academic and small and medium-sized enterprise (“SME”) sectors. Through this program we expect to identify, fund, and support the development of breakthrough technologies that enhance biopharmaceutical R&D productivity and accelerate the development of new, safe and effective drugs for disorders of the brain and nervous system.

Three-year grants of up to $1.5M will be awarded to approximately 7 teams proposing to develop innovative technologies, platforms or tools that can facilitate the discovery or the development of new drugs for application in preventing, diagnosing, or treating disorders and diseases of the brain, nervous system and special senses, including mental health disorders. Successful proposals will have outcomes with immediate application to the process of drug discovery and/or development, with potential for wide impact on biopharmaceutical research.
