Brain Canada seeks to accelerate research advances at all stages in the process: from basic science through population health. We bring together researchers from different disciplines and institutions to form new collaborations and new networks.
Brain Canada’s research funding programs support:

  • High-risk/high-gain research;
  • Rising stars and future leaders in the Canadian brain research community;
  • Unorthodox and innovative collaborations between and within disciplines, to develop new approaches and solutions to intractable problems;
