The Brain Canada & Weizmann Institute of Science Team Grants program aims to leverage strengths and foster international collaboration between researchers in Canada and the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. The program is intended to support hypothesis-driven research that will advance our understanding of the brain and brain disorders.

The program encourages innovative, unorthodox, and exploratory research that may be in the early and conceptual stages of project development but has potential for significant impact on our understanding of the brain. The research topic will focus on hypothesis-driven inquiries on the brain and nervous system, and may span the range of basic, translational, and clinical approaches.
