Principal Investigator Special Purpose Grant is aimed to catalyze NeuroCAM approaches to treating Multiple Sclerosis at the University of Toronto by funding the acquisition of new equipment, infrastructure, and building collaborations as a longer term investment for new directions for a lab. While Branch Out is excited to fund research anywhere along the bench-to-bedside spectrum, the key goal of this grant is to move our understanding of NeuroCAM approaches to Multiple Sclerosis along this spectrum towards community-based impact for patients.
- The reserach team must include 1 faculty member from the University of Toronto, however, collaboration with other institutions is encouraged.
- Branch Out values collaborative projects, particularly those that bring the benefits fof academic research into the community abroad. The most competitive applications will leverage collaborations to maximize the community impact of the research project and have novel knowledge translation plans.
