The W. Garfield Weston Foundation – Brain Canada Foundation Multi-Investigator Research Initiative (MIRI)

In November 2011, the Weston Brain Institute began a collaboration with Brain Canada to provide support for the first five research teams in Brain Canada’s Multi Investigator Research Initiative (MIRI) grant program. The purpose of the Multi-Investigator Research Initiative (MIRI) grants is to support multidisciplinary teams and to accelerate novel and transformative research that will fundamentally change our understanding of nervous system function and dysfunction and their impact on health. The ultimate goal of the program is to reduce the social and economic burden of neurological and mental health problems by prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment.
