NeuroDevNet, a Canada Network of Centres of Excellence (NCE), is dedicated to helping children overcome neurodevelopmental disorders. The vision of the network is to accelerate the pace of understanding the causes of neurological deficits and to transfer this knowledge to health care professionals, policy makers and communities of interest. NeuroDevNet works with its partners in academia, the community, industry, and government, across traditional disciplinary boundaries and sectors, to ensure generated knowledge is translated into tangible diagnostic, preventative, therapeutic, social, economic and health benefits for all.
NeuroDevNet supports transformative research; provides training opportunities to build the next generation of Canadian researchers; empowers communities with the right tools and information; and translates research findings into early diagnostic, preventative and therapeutic strategies for children with neurological disorders to live healthier lives.
The Network’s current research areas of focus are autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. These demonstration projects are supported by NeuroDevNet’s central infrastructure, cores and platforms, including Knowledge Translation,NeuroethicsandNeuroinformatics.
