The Hughlings Jackson Lecture will take place on October 17, 2014 at 4:00 pm at the Neuro. This year, the Neuro’s premier scientific lecture entitled, “Optical deconstruction of fully-assembled biological systems” will be delivered by Dr. Karl Deisseroth, D.H.

McGill’s initial experiment with Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs, has been a success and the first offering, Food for Thought, will be repeated next year. More than 32,000 people from 160 countries, with an average age of 35 (a bit younger than normal) signed up for the MOOC. Almost 1,800 people completed all elements of the course, and another 7,000 people completed at least one assignment or test.
The objective of the 2014 Workshop on Clinical and Applied Proteomics is to gather together clinicians, researchers and trainees who share an interest in applied proteomics/interactomics from a disease-related perspective, as well as those who are interested in learning new technologies, sharing research ideas with others, interacting and collaborating within the RI-MUHC/McGill and externally in Montreal and beyond.
