Together, Brain Canada and the ALS Society of Canada are excited to announce the continuation of their much-valued partnership with a $1-million Discovery Grants competition – launching today!  

The Discovery Grant Program is designed to fuel the innovation that will accelerate our understanding of ALS, identify pathways for future therapies and optimize care to improve the quality of life for people and families affected by this devastating disease.  

Evidence clearly shows that increasing equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in research environments enhances excellence, innovation and creativity. Brain Canada and ALS Canada are committed to excellence through equity and encourage applicants of diverse backgrounds to apply to our funding opportunities.
