Campus Alberta Neuroscience (CAN) is a province-wide network of ~250 research professionals working in neuroscience and mental health: from early brain development to Alzheimer’s and from foundational biological research to clinical, therapeutic and system application of new knowledge.

CAN is designed to deliver significant, positive, measureable and lasting impact through the generation and translation of knowledge. CAN's aim is to establish the province of Alberta as a centre of neuroscience excellence, impact and innovation on the international stage. CAN is led by a steering committee from the Universities of Alberta, Calgary, and Lethbridge.

Campus Alberta Neuroscience's goals are to:

  • FACILITATE NEW COLLABORATIONS, enhance existing collaborations and integrate neuroscience research and education activities across Alberta

  • ENHANCE OUR ABILITY TO ATTRACT THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST neuroscience researchers and trainees to Alberta

  • NETWORK THE NEUROSCIENCE COMMUNITY AND STAKEHOLDERS to accelerate the development of new biomedical technologies and effectively translate research discoveries into new neurological and mental health solutions
