McGill-Western Collaboration Grant

Canada First Research Excellence Fund’s investment of $150 million in McGill University’s Healthy Brains for 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.

To realize this tremendous synergistic potential, 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 terms
  • all project types (discovery-based science to end-user translational research) and sizes (smaller foundation projects to multi-year programs), thus allowing the nature of the research and experimentation to dictate the specifics of the grant.
