The Brain Canada model is based on the principle of bringing together business and science to enable transformations at all stages of the research process, from basic science, to the translation of discoveries and their application to people. A smart way to do research that is underpinned by good governance and benchmarked against international standards.
A SYSTEMS APPROACH that recognizes common underlying mechanisms across brain disorders, such as cell loss, abnormal functioning of nerve cells, and chemical and molecular imbalances in the brain. With this approach to research, breakthroughs in one area will have an impact on multiple conditions.
IDENTIFY GAPS and areas critical to advancing brain research.
Enable MULTIDISCIPLINARY, COLLABORATIVE, HIGH RISK-HIGH REWARD research.
Projects are selected through a RIGOROUS, OPEN, TRANSPARENT, INTERNATIONAL peer review process
