Meet Dr Lindsay Lewis

In the Ludmer Centre, ‘bridge individuals’ are pivotal to advancing transdisciplinary big-data research approaches. These unique individuals bridge or serve as liaisons between diverse neuroscience fields and computer sciences to create the neuroinformatics infrastructure propelling innovative brain research.  Dr Lindsay Lewis is one of these rare bridge individuals. She is also an example of how […]

Neuroscience goes national, $10M grant

A $10M grant from the Canada Brain Research Fund in support of a new partnership to link Canada’s neuroscience researchers through a shared, interoperable neuroinformatics platform was announced today by Health Canada and Brain Canada. The inaugural meeting of the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) collaboration also began its first meeting. A long-time proponent of […]

Opening: Canada Research Chair in Pain Genomics

The Faculty of Medicine is seeking applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the field of Pain Genomics, from candidates with expertise in statistical genetics and/or bioinformatics working in complex human traits and with an interest in their application to pain research. The position is linked with McGill’s Alan Edwards […]

Meet Dr Celia Greenwood

Women researchers remain significantly underrepresented in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering and math. The lack of women across the STEM pipeline—from undergraduate and graduate students to postdocs and tenure-track professors—make it unlikely that gender parity among tenured STEM professors will be achievable in the next decade. In the USA and Canada, mathematics is the exception, […]

Women in Science @ the Ludmer Centre

It’s no secret; globally sexism continues to prevail within business, academia and research, particularly, in STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and math. The theme of the 2018 United Nations’ International Day of Women and Girls in Science on February 11th is ‘Equality and Parity in Science’. On March 8th, International Women’s Day builds on this with […]

Canada-Cuba-China partnership gets $1M to study Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s and dementia research just got a significant boost from a tripartite Canada-Cuba-China research collaboration. Ludmer Centre Scientific Director Dr Alan Evans is part of an international team that just received $1 M in financial support over three years to initiate the first scientific collaboration on brain imaging and neuroinformatics among leading neuroscience researchers in Canada, […]

Dr Alan Evans among 2017 Highly Cited Researchers

  Congratulations to Dr Alan Evans.  Clarivate Analytics once again ranked him among the most Highly Cited Researchers in Neuroscience and Behavior, a ranking he has maintained annually since in 2014. Three other McGill Univeristy researchers also made the top 1% ranking: Dr Mark Lathrop in Molecular Biology and Genetics, Dr Chao-Jun Li in Chemistry, and […]
