Innovation and Entrepreneurship

NeuroSphere works with other groups at McGill and collaborates with external programs to promote innovation and encourage researchers to consider translational projects. Some of the strategies we employ to foster a culture of innovation include:

  • Organizing workshops and training sessions for the McGill neuroscience research community to allow both faculty members and trainees to develop skills, expertise and experience related to innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Offering scholarships to trainees to allow them to participate to events and programs related to innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Offering awards to trainees to promote internships in neuroscience industry
  • Promoting connections between researchers to explore innovative, translational ideas across disciplines
  • Mentoring activities

Current initiatives

The McGill Neuroscience Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program, presented in collaboration with the McGill Dobson Centre for Entrepreneurship, is tailored specifically for neuroscience innovators. The program is designed to take participants from the idea stage to developing and launching a viable startup, while immersing them in the world of entrepreneurship.

Five projects have been selected for the first cohort of the program:

  • 8 Bit Cortex
  • ARC (Activities for Reading Comprehension)
  • C-BIG Repository
  • MBrainBio
  • Nurau Inc.
