The Brain@McGill

By Kaitlyn Easson, Lead Communications Officer, 2018-2019 HBHL Trainee Committee

HBHL-funded graduate students and postdoctoral fellows have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills by volunteering with the HBHL Trainee Committee. The committee contributes to the neuroscience community in Montréal by organizing monthly Trainee Get-Togethers and the annual HBHL Trainee Research Day, both of which allow neuroscience trainees to connect with each other and share their research.

As part of the HBHL-Mitacs partnership, a special joint initiative has been organized to send students from McGill University to Chinese and Japanese academic institutions, and bring in students from these international universities to McGill.  This is part of Mitacs' Globalink Research Awards program. This program provides awards valued at $6,000 CAD for travel and accommodation costs for Canadian students to undertake collaborative research projects at international institutions.

Earlier this week, the first HBHL-SKILLSETS workshop was held. The workshop, entitled Increase Your Impact: Sharing neuroscience research with diverse audiences, was facilitated by Falisha Karpati (Program Officer, Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives) and John Van Heest (Communications Administrator, Teaching and Learning Services). Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from all around McGill joined us to learn about research dissemination methods, and making neuroscience content accessible and engaging for different audiences.
