A unified approach to brain and mental health research

One in three Canadians will be affected by a brain or nervous system illness, disorder or injury in their lifetime. More than 200 researchers at the University of Calgary are making a global impact in this area, unlocking discoveries and innovative new treatments. Led by the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, the university unveiled the Brain and Mental Health Research Strategy Wednesday to unify and support their work. UToday highlights the new strategy and the far-reaching impact of our interdisciplinary research efforts.
