IDRC, the Israel Science Foundation, the Azrieli Foundation, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research announce the call for proposals for the fourth round of the Joint Canada-Israel Health Research Program.

Six grants worth up to CA$1,170,000 each will be awarded to joint biomedical science research teams from Canada, Israel, and low and middle income countries for a period of up to three years.

This fourth call will support world-class research teams working on new frontiers in neurobiology.

Potential research topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • molecular, genetic, and epigenetic basis of neurological diseases
  • developmental neurobiology
  • neuro-immunology
  • neuroendocrinology
  • regenerative medicine in brain disease
  • cellular and molecular basis of cognition
  • modeling brain function
  • imaging of neural processes
  • brain-machine interface
  • novel technologies in neurobiology

Applicants must include a plan for integrating researchers in low and middle income countries and for establishing long-term scientific relationships with them. Such plans could include a range of activities supporting the research and training objectives of the proposal, as well as using this funding opportunity to design a collaborative international research project.

The application process for this funding opportunity consists of two steps: registration and application. Registrations are due January 16, 2018, and applications are due February 13, 2018.

Detailed guidelines for submission are published on CIHR’s Funding Opportunity database.
