hosted by  Beth Zion Congregation

1 Sidney Shoham Place, Côte Saint-Luc, QC,  H4W 0B9

Neuro-imagining techniques play an increasingly important role in research aimed at identifying early-detection biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases and mental illnesses. Ranked among the top 1% of highly cited researchers, Dr Evans is a world authority in imaging technologies, brain mapping and neurological research. He will discuss how the global adoption of neuroinformatics platforms and data-sharing are changing the research landscape, bringing us to a pivotal point in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Autism research, among others.

Dr Alan Evans is the Director of the McGill Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (MCIN), a 60-member research and informatics team at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (The Neuro). He is also is a James McGill Professor in Neurology and Neurosurgery and the Scientific Director of three initiatives aimed at advancing innovative neuroinformatics research: the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform, McGill’s Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives initiative, and the Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics & Mental Health.
