Centre Mont-Royal 1000 Sherbrooke Street West (corner Mansfield), Montreal, Quebec, CA

Revolutionary new approaches and technologies that make organ tissues transparent are helping researchers to see clearly into the brain’s circuitry like never before. At the annual Beatty Memorial Lecture, Dr. Karl Deisseroth (D. H. Chen Professor of Bioengineering and of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University) will discuss how his lab’s discoveries may assist neuroscientists to achieve the goals of mapping the architecture of the brain and uncovering how changes to the brain underlie disease. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to learn what impact Dr. Deisseroth’s work may have for the future of science, engineering, and medicine. RSVP: please register online.
