“Brain Canada has always believed in the importance of supporting the next generation of researchers – training awards for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are an integral part of our research programs,” says Inez Jabalpurwala, President and CEO of Brain Canada. “With this new grant, we are bridging a gap by going beyond training awards to help early-career investigators launch their academic careers.” Supported by the Canada Brain Research Fund, the Early-Career Capacity Building Grant has the potential to be transformative at a time when there is a significant funding gap to support and retain Canada’s brightest early-career investigators, who are well positioned to make major contributions to Canadian brain research.
