Neurophotonics Platform Launch Meeting

The Neurophotonics Centre hosted the Launch meeting for the Canadian Neurophotonics Platform on December 16-17 2014 in Québec city.  The platform aims to develop, test and promote new neurophotonics tools using the power of optics and and photonics to serve research in neurosciences and the brain.

The lauch meeting was a great opportunity for platform members and important collaborators to prioritize the objectives and goals of the new platform.  You can read the announcement of the project here:

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.
