The Medical Innovation Fellowship program at Western University has one position available specifically for a McGill PhD graduate or postdoctoral fellow with experience in neuroscience. This is a great opportunity to learn about the world of medical innovation, and get hands-on product development training!
The inaugural Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) Research Day and Symposium took place on May 9 and 10, 2018. We welcomed over 280 participants to Research Day and 380 to the Symposium.
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.
The Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) initiative is happy to announce the launch of its Neuro-Innovation Fund. HBHL’s Neuro-Innovation Fund aims to close the gap between proof-of-concept research grants, and funding from traditional investors (angels, venture capitalist, institutional investors).
Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL), in conjunction with Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, is proud to announce the launch of its 2018 Graduate Student Fellowships competition. This competition aims to attract, train and retain top students at the graduate level from across disciplines and around the world to participate in interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral research training opportunities related to brain and mental health research, knowledge translation/mobilization and innovat
On March 4th, 2018, over 200 undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers flocked to the University of Western Ontario to attend the 2nd Biennial Inspiring Young Women in STEM Conference. The conference focused on inspiring and supporting young women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) by providing the opportunity to network with and learn from established women in STEM fields.
Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) is a high profile, high priority multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral initiative located at McGill University made possible with support from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF).
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.
Canada First Research Excellence Fund's investment of $150 million in McGill University's Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) and Western University's BrainsCAN marks a pivotal step that will unlock the mysteries of the human mind and lay the groundwork for a pan-Canadian network of collaboration that promises to uncover new ways to treat,
Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) emphasizes the training of highly qualified researchers, clinicians, and informaticians. This includes not only an excellence in research training, but also complementary training opportunities focused on professional skills.
Training of highly qualified researchers, clinicians, and informaticians, is an important component of McGill’s Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) initiative. Over the past year, HBHL’s training program has passed several important milestones.
Here are some of the highlights:
The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) course was spear-headed by Dr. Jane Roskams, and included world-renowned experts in neuroinformatics showcasing their tools and datasets. Dr.
Initiated more than 10 years ago by a collaboration between the McGill Centre for Integrative Neuroscience in Montreal, Canada and the Jülich Research Centre in Germany, the BigBrain atlas is the highest-resolution 3D digital map of the human brain produced to date. The atlas was painstakingly reconstructed from 7404 separate sections of a human brain.
