Don’t miss this great upcoming workshop on expression-based Polygenetic Risk Scores (ePRS). McGill’s Quantitative Life Sciences (QLS) PHD program, the Centre for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and Medicine (CAMBAM), the McGill initiative in Computational Medicine (MiCM), and the Ludmer Center for Neuroinformatics & Mental Health have join forces to offer weekly interdisciplinary seminars. The tutorial was developed in collaboration with the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP). […]

The severity of ADHD can be modulated by the quality of the early childhood environment, lending support for early interventions.
Cancer Computer donates and installs a high-throughput compute cluster – extra computing power of 2.8 million core hours per year- to the Ludmer Centre at McGill to advance omics-based research in both brain health and cancer.
Ludmer Centre and HBHL-supported inaugural meeting of the Global Brain Consortium to explore the potential of EEG to pave the way
An innovative interdisciplinary PhD program will bridge the gap between the quantitative and biological domains to improve life sciences research.
Ludmer Centre Scientific Director Celia Greenwood secured over $600K in funding for new research, Precision Medicine in Cellular Epigenomic, from the recent Genome Canada competitions. To understand brain development, researchers need to unlock the secrets of our DNA. Currently, we can collect data on multiple aspects of DNA, but to extract meaning from the ever-expanding data trove requires the right […]
When it comes to maternal mental health, sadly, Canada lags behind other countries, like Australia and the UK, where pre- and post-natal mental health are subject to regular screening. Listen to CTV’s News at Noon, where Dr Kieran O’Donnell discussed the impact of prenatal anxiety and depression on the mother’s and the child’s long-term mental health with news […]
Those administering policies that separate children from their parents clearly don’t understand the effects of early childhood trauma on the developing brain. In an interview with Quirks & Quarks host Bob McDonald, Dr Michael Meaney explains how parents insulate their children from stresses while their brains mature. When children are traumatically separated from parents their brain is forced to […]
Since arriving at McGill and the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital more than 30 years ago, Alan Evans has helped the University and its network of affiliated hospitals build one of the world’s largest infrastructures of neuroscience research – from the high-resolution Big Brain atlas to supercomputing data-storage technology. These developments and others by his fellow researchers […]
