Brain Canada aims to bring relief and hope to the millions of Canadians who are challenged by neurological and psychiatric diseases, disorders, and injuries by supporting world-class neuroscience research. Our research funding is fully directed to support our partnered initiatives and programs, and we do not directly disburse funds to individuals. The recipients of all funds are selected via rigorous peer review by our Science Advisory Forum.
