New Collaborations

The New Collaborations program is intended to encourage collaborations between researchers from an Alberta-based institution with researchers from institutions outside Alberta.

Qualified investigators may seek funding for small research projects directly related to prion diseases and/or human neurodegenerative diseases and dementias where the etiology involves protein misfolding and the pathogenesis has prion-like characteristics. New Collaborations grants are intended to foster the development of new research partnerships by supporting short-term research projects aimed at addressing relevant fields of inquiry in the Prion Institute themes. Grants of up to $100,000 Canadian for a maximum period of two years are available.

This program has continuous intake.
