Azrieli Science Grants Program – The Neuro-Immune System and Brain Development – LOI

Well-being, Health and Biomedical Discovery


Academic Unit: Inquire with your unit

Memorial Deadline: No RGCS review required for the LOI

External Deadline: Friday 14th, May 2021


Since its establishment in 1989, the Azrieli Foundation has funded institutions and programs in Canada and Israel in eight impact areas, including Science, Research and Healthcare. We support scientific research from bench to bedside and enable the training of scientists and clinicians. Our mission is to advance discoveries and novel approaches that address the core of challenging biomedical problems. To achieve this, we strive to initiate and sustain programs that chart new scientific territory and change paradigms. The Azrieli Foundation supports research in the neurosciences to drive discovery in molecular, cellular and physiological processes of normal and abnormal brain development and homeostasis that could lead to effective treatments, interventions and prevention of neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD).

The Azrieli Science Grants Program

We are pleased to announce our 2021 Request for Applications (RFA):“The Neuro-Immune System and Brain Development”. The Azrieli Science Grants Program has three main objectives:

  • 1) To enable scientific advances in basic and translational neuroscience, with particular focus on neural development and neurodevelopmental disorders
  • 2) To bring new ideas and talent to the field of neurodevelopmental disorders
  • 3) To catalyze collaborative networks of neuroscience researchers around specific research themes.
