10 a.m. – 45 minutes + questions
Hosted by: Dr. David Taylor
VP Research at ALS Canada
The provincial ALS Societies have been funding important ALS research for over thirty years. This webinar will discuss the history of Canada’s research funding through to the current program, which has grown substantially in recent years. There is currently more research to be done than funding available, so the webinar will also explain Canada’s approach to research funding, which is focused on maximizing the impact of donor dollars by awarding grants to projects believed to offer the most promise to advance the field of ALS research.
