Article posted on McGill’s Integrated Program in Neuroscience website on the foundation and vision of the NeuroSymposium.

In an increasingly connected world, which at the same time is growing increasingly more competitive, building a strong provincial network will give neuroscience research in Québec greater exposure and will allow it to shine even more brightly on the national and international stages.



We are proud to announce that the NeuroSymposium project is a Forces AVENIR finalist! Prizes will be announced in October 2017.

Forces AVENIR aims to recognize, honour and promote student engagement in projects that contribute to the training of conscious, responsible, active and persevering citizens who are rooted in their community and open to the world.
