HBHL Research Day 2019/2018

The second annual HBHL Research Day took place on May 3, 2019

HBHL's annual Research Day is designed to showcase the research of trainees (graduate students and postdoctoral fellows) who are working in areas related to HBHL's goals and priorities. Presentations will be given by HBHL Fellows as well as trainee representatives from partnering institutions: BrainsCAN/Western University and IVADO/Université de Montréal. All trainees, faculty and staff with an interest in brain health are encouraged to attend.  

Research Day is part of HBHL's annual two-day event, along with our Symposium.
