Hotchkiss Brain Institute - University of Calgary

Centre of excellence

Key Researcher: Jaideep Bains, Ph.D.
The Hotchkiss Brain Institute and the University of Calgary are home to many researchers who use optogenetic tools for neuroscience research.
The Neurophotonics platform offers a unique opportunity to optimize efforts to develop new tools in collaboration which these users, to share expertise and technologies, and thereby make research a truly collaborative effort across all the laboratories of the platform.
Members of all nodes will work together towards common goals - to develop the most innovative tools for neuroscience research to answer important neuroscience questions.

Platform overview

The Neurophotonics platform is composed of three core production facilities that produce novel tools in a collaborative way. Development and optimisation is further enabled through testing and validation of the tools by Centres of excellence across Canada. Learn more about each node by clicking on it.
