Brain Canada is pleased to announce the launch of the 2022 Future Leaders in Canadian Brain Research program.
This funding opportunity is meant to encourage innovative, unorthodox, and exploratory research that may be in the early and conceptual stages of project development but has potential for significant impact on our understanding of the brain. Open to early-career investigators within five years of starting their first independent research position, the 2022 competition has an overall funding envelope of $2,500,000 to support up to 25 grants of $100,000 over two years.
Evidence clearly shows that increasing equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in research environments enhances excellence, innovation, and creativity. Brain Canada is committed to excellence through equity, and we encourage applicants of diverse backgrounds to apply to our funding opportunities, which will promote the expression of diverse perspectives, approaches, and experiences, including those of underrepresented groups.
