2022 Turnbull-Tator Award in Spinal Cord Injury and Concussion Research
Brain Canada is pleased to be partnering once again with the Barbara Turnbull Foundation for Spinal Cord Research to support discoveries that aim to improve the lives of those impacted by injuries to the spinal cord and brain.
The 2022 Turnbull-Tator Award in Spinal Cord Injury and Concussion Research aims to recognize an outstanding publication by an independent researcher at a Canadian institution in the field of spinal cord and/or brain injury research, including concussion, in the last two years, with a $50,000 prize.
Recognizing the important need to build capacity in these fields, the funds awarded through this Award will be utilized to support the salary/ stipend of full-time graduate student(s) or postdoctoral fellow(s) conducting research in the recipient’s laboratory and contributing to the continuation of the excellent research exemplified by the awarded publication.
Evidence clearly shows that increasing equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in research environments enhances excellence, innovation, and creativity. Brain Canada is committed to excellence through equity, and we encourage applicants of diverse backgrounds to apply to our funding opportunities, which will promote the expression of diverse perspectives, approaches, and experiences, including those of underrepresented groups.
