McGill University will launch an ambitious effort to advance understanding of the human brain and ease the burden of neurological and mental-health disorders, thanks to an $84 million, seven-year grant announced today under the federal government’s Canada First Excellence Research Fund (CFREF). Totaling over $213 million across three institutions – Montreal will be one of the most exciting and vibrant places to work, study and research in Canada over the next decade and far into the future.
Funding from CFREF for McGill’s “Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives” (HBHL) initiative is the next and very important step in our journey toward transforming many brain disorders from terminal or lifelong afflictions to treatable – even curable – conditions. HBHL will be working in partnership with the BrainsCAN Initiative at the University of Western Ontario, also funded by CFREF. Taken together, these two research programs represent $150 million in funding for Canadian neuroscience.
