BRAIN CREATE

breaks the mould of traditional graduate programs with an individualized trainee program.

Canadian industries are undergoing a technological revolution.  Canada's traditional industries are increasingly turning to innovation to maximize human efficiency and safety.   Many of these industries work at geographic, environmental and biological extremes that pose a unique challenge to human physical and mental performance and where new technological solutions are sought.  At the same time, Canada must position itself for the flexible, nimble and ever-changing industries of the future that capitalize on rapidly advancing technology and can offer new healthcare and safety solutions to Canada’s most remote populations. New brain-related neurotechnologies represent an exciting area of dramatic economic growth where these needs intercept.

The BRAIN CREATE training program focuses on how the brain functions when pushed to the limits by geographic, environmental and biological extremes. Our trainees will play critical roles in revamping and modernizing traditional industries with brain-centric innovations, while galvanizing activities in newer sectors developing, commercializing and using advanced pharmaceuticals, artificial intelligence, smart monitoring, implantable medical and imaging devices, biometrics, emerging human space exploration technologies and new approaches to remote diagnostics.
