CAN Connection – Spring 2021

Promoting neuroscience research is another important objective of CAN. This year, we have received a record number of applications for the CAN Young Investigator Award (14 candidates!) – this attests to the excellence of these new researchers, and the engagement of our community. We are proud to have partnered with CIHR-INMHA to manage the Brain Star Awards, which are a wonderful way to highlight some of the best publications from Canadian laboratories in a calendar year. CAN video research features are another quick way to highlight trainee research – I invite you submit a proposal to participate in this program, so we can share your discoveries on our website and in our social media accounts.
