JDRF Canada – Brain Canada Addressing Mental Health in Type 1 Diabetes Team Grants

July 15, 2021

Brain Canada and JDRF are pleased to launch the JDRF Canada – Brain Canada Addressing Mental Health in Type 1 Diabetes Team Grants, a program to support research on the development, validation, or implementation of interventions that address mental health concerns in people with type 1 diabetes.

This new funding opportunity is open to research teams of two or more independent investigators from different institutions, or distinct departments within the same institution.

The JDRF Canada – Brain Canada Addressing Mental Health in Type 1 Diabetes Team Grants will offer two grants of up to $250,000 each over two years to fund the development and testing of sustainable, scalable approaches that will enable improved support for Canadians who live with type 1 diabetes and are affected by mental health disorders, and will translate into better quality of life and diabetes-related health outcomes for these populations.

Increasing equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in research environments enhances excellence, innovation and creativity. JDRF Canada and Brain Canada are committed to excellence through equity, and we encourage applicants of diverse backgrounds to apply to our funding opportunities.
