Prion

Research Team Program

The Research Team Program allows teams of qualified investigators to seek funding for research directly related to prion diseases and prion-like human neurodegenerative diseases and dementias.

The research themes for this program are protein folding and misfolding in prion diseases, the pathobiology of TSEs, surveillance and control of prion diseases, TSEs and society, protein folding and misfolding in prion-like human neurodegenerative diseases and prion-like mechanisms in the pathobiology of prion-like human neurodegenerative diseases. The program is designed to encourage collaboration within Alberta and between Alberta-based investigators and researchers outside of Alberta. The team of researchers must be from at least two different research institutions. The Alberta Prion Research Institute provides up to $750,000 for a team grant over a maximum of three years.
