The Azrieli Science Grants Program enables advancement in basic and translational neuroscience, with a focus on neural development and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs). We provide multi-year funding to scientists from Canadian universities and research institutes, selected through peer-reviewed competitions.
The Azrieli Science Grants Program aims to address challenging biomedical questions by funding research projects that chart new scientific territory, bring novel ideas to the field and encourage collaboration around specific research themes. Our mission is to drive discoveries in the molecular, cellular and physiological processes of brain development and homeostasis that could lead to greater understanding of, and interventions for, NDDs.
Selected projects are awarded yearly grants for the funding period of two or three years to put towards eligible expenses.
Projects are ranked by an external peer-review committee of Canadian and international researchers with relevant scientific and clinical expertise. The top-ranked projects receive funding.
