Western, UCalgary researchers among recipients of new brain research funding


Health Canada has committed $200M to Brain Canada in support of projects focused on brain health research. Four grants were announced earlier this week, which were awarded to Dr Emma G Duerden (Western University), Dr Lisa Saksida (Western), Dr Signe Bray (University of Calgary), and Dr Sylvia Villeneuve (Douglas Hospital Research Centre). “Better research means better brain health for all,” stated London North Centre MP Peter Fragiskatos. “The work of Dr Duerden, Dr Saksida, Dr Villeneuve and Dr Bray will play an important role in advancing our knowledge of the brain and, ultimately, enhancing Canada’s capacity in neuroscience research.”
