CRN Graduate Students Association (GSA)


CRN graduate students and postdocs annually field a team in McGill's Thompson House Softball league. And every year they challenge the CRN faculty in an annual showdown!

In addition, we organize several other more scholarly pursuits (see below). 

Friday Neuro Journal Club

In this journal club we discuss papers published in any field of neurobiology, reflecting the diverse interests of our group. We meet on Fridays at 5:00 PM in room L7-140 of the Montreal General Hospital.   This journal club is generously supported by the Integrated Program in Neuroscience. For information, please contact Scott Cameron (scott [dot] cameron2 [at] mail [dot] mcgill [dot] ca).
