Weston Brain Institute: Open Funding Opportunities

The Weston Brain Institute has re-announced the following funding opportunities with new webinar dates and extended letter of intent deadlines.

1)  Rapid Response: Canada 2019, the objective:  to provide seed funding for novel, high-risk, high-reward, translational research that will accelerate the development of therapeutics for neurodegenerative diseases of aging.

Focus:
Alzheimer’s and Related Diseases (e.g., Alzheimer’s  disease; frontotemporal dementia; mild cognitive impairment; prodromes; vascular contributions to the listed diseases)

Parkinson’s and Related Diseases (e.g., Parkinson’s disease; Progressive supranuclear palsy; Dementia with lewy bodies; Multiple system atrophy; prodromes; vascular contributions to the listed diseases)
