The Integrated Program in Neuroscience (IPN) is McGill’s brand new, inter-departmental, inter-disciplinary neuroscience program for graduate students.  As Canada’s largest training program for neuroscience students, this new program will bring together and encourage synergy amongst faculty members, postdoctoral fellows and students from different backgrounds all with a neuroscience focus.

 

The program is kicking off with a two-day retreat on September 17th and 18th at the Centre Mont-Royal.  The retreat will welcome new graduate students and will also present a unique opportunity for all the neuroscientists under the McGill umbrella to gather under one roof.

 

Come find out how your researchers are contributing to the rich neuroscience culture for which McGill is renowned. Where electrophysiologists can meet neuro-engineers or imaging specialists and behavioural neurobiologists and more!
