CIHR and its partners are pleased to announce the launch of the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA) Expression of Interest. The CCNA will be the premier research hub for all aspects of research involving neurodegenerative diseases that affect cognition in aging — including Alzheimer’s disease.
Knowledge Translation is an integral component of this initiative. To be successful the teams must be strongly engaged in transforming existing and new knowledge generated into better care policies, practices, procedures, products and services for individuals with neurocognitive diseases and their caregivers. The CCNA is required to involve end-users (policy makers, clinicians, industry, patients associations) from the on-set and throughout the entire research process.
How can I be part of the CCNA?
CIHR has put in place a number of engagement activities to ensure interested researchers, knowledge users and partners have the opportunity to signal their interest in participating in the CCNA.
- Online information sessions (webinars) – April 2013
- Online tools for researchers/knowledge users to signal their interest in participating
- Expression of interest – deadline May 21st, 2013
