Funding Opportunities

NeuroDevNet supports research efforts that not only expand our understanding of brain development and neurodevelopmental disorders, but also help link Canadian researchers focused on neurodevelopment. We fund innovative research with the potential to produce findings that will profoundly affect patient care, translational models, and how we understand basic elements of brain development and disease.

The NeuroDevNet Opportunities Initiative is a program that supports small research projects that are highly synergistic with ongoing research, or are independent pilot projects with strong potential to grow into a larger research program. These funding opportunities aim to facilitate interaction between investigators and build the NeuroDevNet collective community.

NeuroDevNet also offers opportunities to develop workshops, brain storming sessions, and short courses. With our partner organizations, we are currently developing workshops topics, such as medical bioinformatics, mathematic modeling, and clinical imaging. New and established investigators are encouraged to develop proposals for these networking activities. We will issue several calls for workshop proposals each year, to provide NeuroDevNet members more opportunities for training highly qualified personnel, and to expand research partnerships.
