2023 Research Day

Dear colleagues and friends,

The Centre thématique de recherche en neurosciences (CTRN) is pleased to invite you to the 15th Neuroscience Research Day at Université Laval, which will be held on Monday, February 6, 2023 at the Centre des congrès de Québec.
This event is intended for students, postdoctoral fellows, professors and clinicians involved in neuroscience research at Université Laval, as well as for those interested in this field of research. This annual meeting is a privileged opportunity to present your research work, learn more about the work of others, meet new colleagues and establish fruitful scientific collaborations.

Dr Shernaz Bamji

This day will allow us to highlight the remarkable quality of the new generation of neuroscience researchers at Université Laval through scientific conferences given by young researchers, as well as to underline the quality of the research of established researchers who contribute to the reputation of Université Laval here and abroad. We will also take the opportunity to highlight the 10th anniversary of the CTRN.

As a guest speaker, we are honored to welcome Dr. Shernaz Bamji. Dr. Bamji is a Professor in the Department of Cellular and Physiological Sciences and a founding member of the School of Biomedical Engineering at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Bamji is also co-director of the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health and a member of the Board of Directors of Brain Canada. Her research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms by which synaptic connections in the brain are formed, remodeled and eliminated and how their dysfunction disrupts brain function.  

We look forward to seeing you there!
