BrainsCAN is a neuroscience research initiative located at Western University that aims to transform the way brain diseases and disorders are understood, diagnosed and treated. Through its innovative funding programs and core infrastructure, BrainsCAN is accelerating effective solutions for maintaining a healthy brain.

BrainsCAN's goal is to reduce the burden of brain disorders, which affect nearly 3.6 million Canadians, diminishing quality of life and creating an enormous burden on society and on our healthcare system. Through BrainsCAN, researchers across many disciplines of brain health are able to work together to radically transform our understanding of the brain.
