Neurophotonics: Harnessing the power of light to study the nervous system and understand the mysteries of the brain.
The Centre and Platform: A high caliber multidisciplinary team dedicated to the development of new tools to improve our understanding of the nervous system and lead to better diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases.
Congratulations to Yves De Koninck, who will be awarded the 2019 Emily M Gray Award from the Biophysical Society (BPS) on March 4, 2019. De Koninck will be honored at the Society's 63rd Annual Meeting at the Baltimore Convention Center on March 4, 2019, during the annual BPS Awards and Lecture Presentation.
De Koninck will be recognized for his work in the development of internationally renowned, transdisciplinary training initiatives in neurophysics and neurophotonics that have provided hands-on training for numerous students and postdoctoral fellows.
Two members of the Neurophotonics Centre, Yves De Koninck and Daniel Côté are part of a team of researchers, which also includes researchers from the Centre d'optique, photonique et lasers (COPL), who was awarded the 2018 Brockhouse Canada Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in Science and Engineering.
Steve arrived at the Centre a little more than a month ago, and will be working here 2 days a week; on Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can see him at the electronic workshop on the 6th floor (F-6478) or get in touch with him by phone (4719) or via email (email@example.com)
Congratulations to Damon DePaoli who won the prize for "Best overall poster presentation at the Canadian Neuromodulation Society 10th Annual Scientific Meeting, which took place in Whistler British Columbia February 4-6, 2018. Damon DePaoli, a PhD student in Daniel Côté's laboratory, won this award for his poster titled "Fiber-based tissue identification for electrode placement in deep brain stimulation neurosurgery ".
On Sunday June 11th, 2017, Scientifica opened its first Centre of Excellence in the Neurophotonics Centre. We celebrated this important collaboration with members of the Scientifica team in a reception at the Neurophotonics Centre, with members of the Neurophotonics team and the 2017 Summer school attendees.
Phil Golding, Scientifica’s General Manager for North America, announced the opening during a short presentation.
