McGill-Western Collaboration Grant

Canada First Research Excellence Fund’s investment of $150 million in McGill University’s Healthy Brains, Healthy Lives (HBHL) and Western University’s BrainsCAN marks a pivotal step that will unlock the mysteries of the human mind - and lay the groundwork for a pan-Canadian network of collaboration that promises to uncover new ways to treat, prevent and cure brain disorders.

McGill and Western University have developed the McGill-Western Collaboration Grant to support impactful research that leverages this unique HBHL and BrainsCAN collaboration.

This grant will support:

  • transformational research in neuroscience and neuro-informatics
  • new and established collaborative teams
  • all project types (discovery-based science to end-user translational research) and sizes (smaller foundation projects to multi-year programs)
