NeuroSphere, McGill’s neuroscience innovation accelerator, is pleased to announce the 12 award recipients from its second Ignite Grant Competition.
As the first of two phases in the HBHL Neuro-Commercialization Grants program, the objective of the Ignite Grants is to support small-scale validation and proof-of-principle efforts in the development of a neuroscience-related technology. The second phase of the program, the Accelerate Grants, is meant to support research aimed at improving a technology's commercial potential and to position it for commercial development.
