Description

Brain Canada is pleased to share a new funding opportunity for researchers. The European Union Joint Programme on Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND), a global research initiative with 30 member countries, has launched a transnational call for research on linking pre-diagnosis disturbances of physiological systems to neurodegenerative diseases. Brain Canada, Women’s Brain Health Initiative (WBHI) and Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) will be funding up to three Canadian research teams. 

Integrating a sex and gender lens in research will improve the way health interventions are designed, measured, analyzed, reported and implemented. Research approaches that consistently account for sex and gender drive innovation and scientific rigour, while also reducing gender-based health inequities for previously underrepresented voices. By partnering with WBHI, and funding projects that effectively address sex and gender differences, Brain Canada aims to support research that is generalizable to everyone and will ultimately enable the development of new diagnostics or interventions for a more diverse group of patients with neurodegenerative diseases. 

Eligibility

The Nominated Principal Applicant must have an academic or research appointment at an eligible institution (See Administration of CIHR Grants and Awards Funds for eligibility process and associated timelines).

In addition to the application submission to the Joint Programme Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND), Canadian consortium members applying for funding from Canada must complete an abbreviated CIHR application (in either of Canada’s official languages) and submit it using ResearchNet Only applications incorporating sex- and gender-based considerations in the proposed research will be eligible for funding from Brain Canada and Women’s Brain Health Initiative (WBHI).

Funding Availability

The total funding for this opportunity is $999,000 CDN ($666,000 from CIHR and $333,000 from Brain Canada and WBHI will go towards research projects that include sex and gender-based analysis).  Anticipate to fund three applications.
