Funded under the Canada Brain Research Fund

Through Budget 2011 and 2016, the Government of Canada committed up to $120 million to the Canada Brain Research Fund, which is administered by the Brain Canada Foundation. Under the 2015 Multi-Investigator Research Initiative, Platform Support Grant, and the Azrieli Neurodevelopmental Research Program competitions, a total of 18 research grants have been awarded totalling approximately $29M.

BIOTIC: The BIOmedical Translational Imaging Centre Amount: $416,108

The BIOmedical Translational Imaging Centre (“BIOTIC”) is the only hospital-based imaging lab in Canada with an explicit mandate to translate brain science innovations through commercial partnership. Dr. Beyea and his team aim to improve accessibility to a range of neuroimaging expertise and infrastructure so that companies can demonstrate efficacy of their technology and/or collaborate to develop new technologies. The role of BIOTIC is to help bridge the gap between early-stage research and clinical trials thereby accelerating the path from brain science discoveries to commercialization of new brain products. Two institutions (seven team members) in one province are involved.
