The HBHL Symposium is designed to showcase the vision, goals and priorities of McGill's most ambitious interdisciplinary brain and mental health research initiative. Join us for a day of thoughtful exchange on our four research themes that will spark new ideas, collaboration and innovation, not only within McGill but across the Canadian and international neuroscience communities.
Highlights of the HBHL Symposium:
- Keynote presentations by world-leading experts in the field of neuroscience
- Progress reports from senior HBHL researchers who lead our Discovery and Innovative Ideas projects
- HBHL funding and activities updates
- Opportunities to network and form collaborations
- Complimentary lunch & refreshments, and reception to close the day
The Symposium is part of HBHL's annual two-day event, along with our Research Day.
