CPSR invites collaborative proposals focused on optimizing the dose and timing of sensory-motor rehabilitation and recovery interventions following stroke. The goal is to address fundamental unanswered questions through collaborative proof-of-principle studies. It is expected that the outcomes of this research will form the basis of larger applications to other agencies (e.g., CIHR, HSF). Both preclinical (basic) and clinical research are encouraged, provided a clear rationale is included as to potential translational impact of the research for people living with stroke. 
 
Funding Available
 
Up to four awards of up to $200,000 per grant will be awarded. The time period for conducting the research will be October 2019 to March 2022 (2.5 years).
