Our Partners



Campus Alberta Neuroscience

Launched in 2009, is a catalyst and connector, a way to bring basic researchers, applied scientists and clinicians together. It is a single community, a neuroscience “superhighway” between the Universities of Lethbridge, Calgary, Alberta.



Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program

The Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program offers a unique opportunity to work with leading researchers across campus to advance knowledge and find solutions to improve human animal health and wellness in Engineering, Kinesiology, Medicine, Nursing, Science and Veterinary Medicine, to make new discoveries, and to make a difference in the lives of people around the globe.


Branch Out Neurological Foundation

Branch Out accelerates tech solutions and non-pharmaceutical approaches to neurological disorders. Through our grant program, we fund top neuroscientists exploring alternative brain research. Our vision? A world free from neurological disorders. We fund research that fits into the rigorous NeuroCAM (Neuroscience + Complementary & Alternative Modalities) criteria.


Graduate Students’ Association

The University of Calgary Graduate Students’ Association represents the collective interests of graduate students to governing bodies of the university, all levels of government and the surrounding community of Calgary. Established in 1967, and having approximately 6500 members, the GSA is charged with the social, academic and practical well-being and growth of graduate students on campus.



The Owerko Centre

The Owerko Centre at the Alberta Children's Hospital Research Institute is dedicated to studying neurodevelopmental disorders and child mental health. The centre draws its support from a large group of multidisciplinary researchers across the University of Calgary with expertise encompassing a broad range of neurodevelopmental and pediatric mental health research in basic, clinical, health services and population health.


Hotchkiss Brain Institute

The Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI) is an internationally recognized centre of excellence in brain and mental health research and education, based at the University of Calgary’s Cumming School of Medicine and working in partnership with Alberta Health Services. The HBI is composed of nearly 750 people, spanning 16 academic departments and nine faculties working towards a shared vision.


Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute

The Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI) is a multi-faculty, interdisciplinary teaching and research institute located at the University of Alberta. It is home to over 150 scientists and clinicians, spanning across all areas of neuroscience and mental health. 



Platform Calgary

These are exciting times. The next wave of shared prosperity is being generated in our city, in front of our eyes. By working together, we can make Calgary a global hub for startups and innovation. Platform Calgary is focused on three core areas of work: placemaking, acceleration, and advocacy.

Become an Ally

Neuro Nexus catalyzes innovation for brain science, neurological disorders, and mental health conditions.

Projects undertaken during the program help researchers, clinicians, community professionals and industry members de-risk an idea and connect with top talent, and empower young innovators with rare experiences to work on meaningful projects and hone much needed 21st century skills. Teams and project outcomes are tracked and proudly shared as they graduate into the ecosystem and begin to make their impact.

Partnering with us plants an image of who you are and what you have to offer in the minds of software developers, engineers, scientists, doctors and entrepreneurs as they begin their careers.
