As a Canadian Network of Centres of Excellence (NCE), NeuroDevNet and its investigators work across traditional disciplinary boundaries with partners and stakeholders in academia, the community and not-for-profit sector, industry and government. Together, we ensure our findings are translated into tangible social, economic and health benefits to society as a whole.
We do this through transformative research - engaging in high-impact projects that challenge and advance current understanding. We provide innovative training opportunities to seed a new generation of Canadian researchers dedicated to the same objectives, and empower communities with tools and information to promote earlier diagnosis, better treatment, and optimal outcomes for children today, and in the future.
NeuroDevNet's current research projects focus on autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, sleep, the social determinants of health and health economics, supported by collaboration with Core services in neuroethics, neuroinformatics, and knowledge translation.
