The Science and Engineering Faculty at Université Laval recently launched the LAB en ligne website, which is a directory of equipment and installations available to the scientific community at Université Laval.

From the  LAB en ligne website (in French only):

Congratulation to Robert Bonin, post-doctoral researcher in Yves De Koninck's laboratory, who was named "étudiant-chercheur du mois" for March 2015 by the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Santé. The award was given for the publication of: A Spinal Analogue of Memory Reconsolidation Enables Reversal of Hyperalgesia, published in : Nature Neuroscience, vol.

Antoine Godin et Philippe Couillard à BordeauxThe Premier of Québec, Philippe Couillard, visited our colleagues at the Institut d’optique d’Aquitaine on February 5, 2015.  During this visit, he met with Antoine Godin, who is doing a post-doc in Bordeaux about his research on neurology.  

Dr. Godin is graduate of the Neurophysics Graduate Program.

Neurolinks logoNeurolinks is a free networking event for companies and students working in the area aof neuroscience and biophotonics.  This event gives all participants a unique opportunity to increase their professional network (companies and funding organisms).

Members of the Neurophotonics Centre have published a new robust and rapid approach to simplify polarimetric measurements in second-harmonic generation, two-photon excited fluorescence and coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering. The technique consists of adding a second properly oriented compensation dichroic to negate any scrambling of the polarization by polarimetric microscopy.

A team lead by Frédéric Leblond, Professor at Polytechnique Montréal, and Kevin Petrecca, Chief neurosurgeon at the McGill University Health Centre, with collaborators at the Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University and the MUHC has developped a new probe that can detect cancer cells in the brain with a precision higher than the existing technology.
The probe, which works by Raman spectroscopy, can detect cancer cells that are not detectable by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

Campbell Calcium imagingDr. Robert Campbell, from the University of Alberta, recently published an article in Nature Methods in which he describes novel biosensors that change color in response to specific biological event.
