Molson Foundation $2M gift to establish world-class imaging facility

A $2 million gift from the Molson Foundation is enabling The Neuro to establish the new Molson Cellular Imaging Facility. This will be a ground-breaking cellular imaging facility combining the expertise of top scientists from around the world with the most advanced equipment and resources.

Most neurological disorders result from slight changes in the function and connectivity of brain cells. Advances in microscopy and image analysis have transformed the way in which scientists can examine and understand normal nerve cell function and determine how it is disrupted in models of disease.

The Molson Cellular Imaging Facility is being created to house innovative microscopy at The Neuro. With all cellular imaging under a single roof, microscope users will collaborate in understanding and treating disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ataxias, autism, ALS, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease, epilepsy, and acute conditions including stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and brain tumours.

The Molson Foundation shares The Neuro’s commitment to alleviating and one day preventing the suffering of those living with neurological disease or disorders. The Foundation’s several leading gifts to The Neuro in support of projects on the cutting edge of science and technology have allowed us to do more, better and faster.
