Components of the CIHR Dementia Research Strategy

The CIHR Dementia Research Strategy is composed of two complementary components that maximize Canadian research in neuroscience and aging:

Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA)

The national component of the Strategy, the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA), aims to accelerate innovative and collaborative Canadian research in neurodegenerative diseases in aging that have an impact on cognition.

International component

The international component of the Strategy, formerly known as the International Collaborative Research Strategy for Alzheimer's Disease, facilitates the participation of Canadian researchers in key international partnerships.

It is expected that this Strategy will increase the impact of the research and will enable Canadian researchers to lead and participate in the opportunities offered by a new wave of national and international initiatives. In addition, the CCNA is well positioned to help Canada respond to the World Health Organization Report "Dementia – A Public Health Priority" calling on countries to collaborate to find solutions to the cause and treatment of dementia.
