The Road to Open Science

The Neuro sets a precedent for other research institutes to adopt the principles of Open Science. We are inspired by the likes of the Allen Institute for Brain Science, the National Institutes of Health's Human Connectome project, and the Human Genome project.

Increasing openness in research, and operating along principles of collaboration improves transparency, reliability, and the impact of research.

We are building a bridge to erase geographical barriers and bring researchers together to share their questions and discoveries.

We are creating innovative partnerships between the scientific community and the pharmaceutical industry to find cures for the most devastating neurological diseases.

Supporting Open Science at The Neuro requires an investment in scientific talent, space and specialized equipment and materials.

 Increase Clinical Trials Capacity

We are giving Neuro patients the opportunity to be the first to benefit from new therapies and protocols developed through our open science research.

New Infrastructure

We will adapt our current IT infrastructure
to support Open Science.

Open Drug Discovery Platform

We are investing in technical staff, equipment and materials to develop targeted pre-drug compounds.

C-BIG Repository

We are building a repository to store and share securely patient material, linked to relevant
research and clinical data.

The Montreal Neurological Institute & Hospital is a McGill University research and teaching institute; delivering the highest quality of care to patients, as part of the Neuroscience Mission of the McGill University Health Centre. The Neuro is proud to be a Killam Institution, supported by the Killam Trusts.
