Supervisor Guidelines and Responsibilities During COVID
Reminder, all Principal Investigators and their research personnel must follow approved directives in case someone develops symptoms and/or comes in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
Study identifies rapidly dividing cancer stem cells that can respond to new therapies
Brain cancers have long been thought of as being resistant to treatments because of the presence of multiple types of cancer cells within each tumor. A new study uncovers a cancer cell hierarchy that originates from a single cancer cell type, which can be targeted to slow cancer growth.

Updated Directives Research Ramp-up Phase 3
As of July 8, 2020, all researchers who cannot perform their tasks remotely will be allowed to return to work, in compliance with all safety protocols.
As a consequence, the restriction of a maximum of 75% of staff whose tasks require presence at work is lifted.

Award recognizes his collaborative work in neuroscience and neuroinformatics
Neuroscientist Alan Evans has been awarded the Killam Prize, one of Canada’s highest honours, for his numerous contributions to the understanding of the human brain.
Evans is an internationally recognized researcher at The Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital), James McGill Professor in Neurology and Neurosurgery and the Victor Dahdaleh Chair in Neurosciences.
Transmission Prevention Guidelines for McGill Staff and Students returning home after being denied access to The NeuroWhat should I do if I have COVID-19 symptoms? Immediately wear a mask to prevent the spread of the virus. Isolate yourself from others as quickly as possible. Call Montreal’s coronavirus hotline at 514-644-4545 or 1-877-644-4545 ► If recommended by health professionals, go for testing asap.
Restart of research activities at The Neuro will follow the McGill University on-campus research phase-in directives and the guidelines on preventing spread of COVID-19.
As The Neuro moves into a transition phase, which includes the gradual resumption of research activities starting on Monday May 25th, please note that use of elevators is now restricted (please see table below).Elevator A (Rockefeller) is accessible for patients, hospital and research staff.
· Patients have priority access.
We have drafted a Neuro plan and guidelines for the phased in resumption of research activities, complying with both McGill and MUHC protocols.
The Neuro plan is currently being reviewed by the University. While this process takes its due course, please note that the first phase of research resumption at The Neuro is tentatively planned to start on May 19.
