Launched in March 2019 with a call for initial proposals, the ResearchMatch program of the McGill initiative in Computational Medicine (MiCM) was developed in an effort to better connect life science and clinical researchers with colleagues focused on data sciences.
Given the current situation around COVID-19, the McGill initiative in Computational Medicine (MiCM) Summer Scholars Program will be moving forward with some modifications. Students will only be hired if remote, work-from-home activity can also be supported. Moreover, we plan to deliver a modified version of our workshop series as an online series. Please anticipate some potential delays in start dates as new processes are deployed.
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, please note that further changes to offers and programming may be forthcoming.
The McGill Sustainability Systems Initiative is looking for big ideas in sustainability research from McGill faculty members based in the social sciences and humanities.
Solutions to sustainability challenges require much more than technological innovation, as viable plans to achieve sustainability must also address social and economic factors and conditions. For example, shifting society towards a more sustainable path will necessitate new norms, attitudes, habits, laws, economic incentives or instruments and public policies.
With a total funding envelope of $1.65 million, the new HBHL International Partnerships Program supports large-scale, multi-year projects that build and advance partnerships with leading institutions that will help McGill University to:
- Compete with the best in the world for talent, for partnership opportunities, and to make breakthrough discoveries
- Seize emerging opportunities and strategically advance its greatest strengths on the global stage
- Implement large-scale, transformational and forward-thinking institutional strategies
Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) is pleased to announce the second round of its Innovative Ideas competition. The Innovative Ideas Program supports the exploration of novel ideas with the potential for breakthrough science. At least 8 projects will be awarded up to $200,000 over 2 years.
The deadline for submitting a Letter of Intent (LOI) is November 23, 2018, 5:00 pm EST
Consult the program description for more details.
This competition aims to attract, train and retain top students at the postdoctoral level from across disciplines and around the world to participate in interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral research training opportunities related to brain and mental health research, knowledge translation/mobilization and innovation.

As part of the HBHL-Mitacs partnership, a special joint initiative has been organized to send students from McGill University to Chinese and Japanese academic institutions, and bring in students from these international universities to McGill. This is part of Mitacs' Globalink Research Awards program. This program provides awards valued at $6,000 CAD for travel and accommodation costs for Canadian students to undertake collaborative research projects at international institutions.
The Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) initiative is happy to announce the launch of its Neuro-Innovation Fund. HBHL’s Neuro-Innovation Fund aims to close the gap between proof-of-concept research grants, and funding from traditional investors (angels, venture capitalist, institutional investors). The Fund will provide technology development grants to support further proof of principle and/or add value to new technologies or inventions related to the research themes of HBHL.
Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL), in conjunction with Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, is proud to announce the launch of its 2018 Graduate Student Fellowships competition. This competition aims to attract, train and retain top students at the graduate level from across disciplines and around the world to participate in interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral research training opportunities related to brain and mental health research, knowledge translation/mobilization and innovation.
Applications are due on April 20, 2018.
Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) is a high profile, high priority multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral initiative located at McGill University made possible with support from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF). The HBHL Strategic Research Plan outlines the vision, deliverables, and overall goals of the initiative, and the research priorities of its four research themes.
Canada First Research Excellence Fund's investment of $150 million in McGill University's Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) and Western University's BrainsCAN marks a pivotal step that will unlock the mysteries of the human mind and lay the groundwork for a pan-Canadian network of collaboration that promises to uncover new ways to treat, prevent and cure brain disorders.
The HCALM (Health Care Access for Linguistic Minorities) Network is launching a call for proposals for research projects whose focus is to investigate the relationship between language and access to health care or social services. Application deadline: April 9, 2017.
