Established in 2013, the Ludmer Centre brought together cutting-edge neuroscience infrastructure from three leading research institutions: the Douglas University Mental Health Institute (Douglas), the Jewish General Hospital’s Lady Davis Institute (JGH/LDI), and the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI), all of which are McGill University centres (McGill).
The Centre united four complementary research pillars led by three Scientific Directors. World-renowned leaders in their field, their labs include post-doctoral fellows, PhD/Masters students, and some 75 staff. In 2017, the Ludmer Centre received accreditation as a McGill Centre allowing it to extend membership to include dynamic, early-career researchers: Primary Investigators (PI).
