The Oxford-McGill Neuroscience Collaboration was initiated in 2009 to provide support for joint workshops, grant writing exercises and pilot projects in all areas of neuroscience, from molecular to clinical. To date the collaboration has funded 24 projects with a total investment of £210,000. One of the projects has led to a £4m Wellcome Trust Strategic Award for the University of Oxford Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute (SCNi).
