Congratulations to the Director of the Neurophotonics Centre, Yves De Koninck for his recent appointment to the Royal Society of Canada.

He was named member of this prestigious Society in recognition of "seminal contributions to understanding how neurons communicate at the cellular and molecular levels, in normal and pathological pain. Equally ground-breaking are his contributions to developing novel photonics technologies to push the frontiers of neuroscience."

The largest research subsidy in the history of Université Laval, an imposing 98 millions $ over seven years, will support researchers, and allow the creation of the Sentinel North research initiative.  

The Frontiers in Neurophotonics Summer School is a unique opportunity for a small class of highly motivated students to spend 10 days learning and working hands-on with the highly qualified personnel of the Neurophotonics Centre in Québec city.

During this very intense workshop, students hear lectures from world experts in neuroscience and optics, and use state-of-the-art equipment to investigate the brain and nervous system.

Dr. Yves De Koninck has been named Director of Research of the  Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux (CIUSSS) de la Capitale-Nationale. For more information, read the  Press release.

Université de Montréal has given an honorary doctorate to Dr. Yves De Koninck for his exceptional contribution to the field of neuroscience and pain treatment.  

Dr. Guy Breton, Rector of Université de Montréal, highlighted the visionnary aspect of the interdisciplinary research done by Dr. De Koninck when he gave him the honorary degree :

We have just been informed of important changes regarding the travel awards for SfN chapters. New this year, chapters will no longer submit nominations, but instead the potential awardees will need to self-nominate on SfN.org.

Undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral trainees are invited to apply for a Trainee Professional Development Award directly at SfN.org.

Major renovations are planned to the Molecular tools culture rooms and will require the shutting down of viral vector production for the month of June, while improvements to the facilities are underway. Production of molecular constructs will not be interrupted by the renovations. Please plan ahead of time and place your orders early!  Please note that orders for viral vectors will still be taken during the renovations, but that there will be a delay in production.
