Third call for projects and travel awards

The McGill-Oxford-ZNZ Partnership in the Neurosciences promotes collaborative research between the three neuroscience centers. The partners are happy to announce a third call for joint projects and graduate student awards.

Joint projects/workshops for principal investigators
Considered are proposals for joint pilot projects and workshops that are submitted together with colleagues from Brain@McGill and/or Oxford Neuroscience. This call for proposals applies to projects concerning any area relevant to the nervous system and its disorders. Preference will be given to new, innovative, or high-risk collaborative projects.

Principal investigators from at least two partner universities can file an application. The deadline for application is Monday 14 December 2015. Full details and application forms are available here.

Travel awards for graduate students and postdocs

Student mobility and training are also an integral part of this joint program. Graduate students and postdocs of the ZNZ can directly apply for financial support of an individual research stay of 1-4 months in a partner laboratory at McGill or Oxford University.
