Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a devastating fatal disease of the nervous system that kills two to five Canadians every day. On September 19th and 20th, the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (The Neuro), at McGill University and the McGill University Health Centre will host the 10th Annual ALS Symposium of the Fondation André-Delambre. Nearly one hundred researchers and clinicians from several countries will come together to discuss recent progress in ALS research.

Post-Synaptic Careers - Life after a Neuroscience Degree (A new Discussion Series with guest speakers)

Thu, 2013-03-28 18:00 - 19:30
Montreal Neurological Institute : deGrandpre Amphitheatre, BTRC, 3801 Rue University, 3801 rue University Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 2B4

What can one do after a degree in Neuroscience? 

This discussion series will address this question through informal conversations with some successful non-academics with graduate degrees in neuroscience; the series will compliment IPN’s Pathways and Connections, which is the academic equivalent of Post-Synaptic Careers. This is your chance to talk to those who were once where you are. Ask the guest speakers about the often difficult decision to leave academia and the important, but sometimes serendipitous, connections that led them to where they are now.
