Damon received the “Best Overall Poster Presentation” award at the Canadian Neuromodulation Society 10th Annual Scientific Meeting that was held on February 4-6, 2018 in Whistler, British Columbia. The title of his poster : Fiber-based tissue identification for electrode placement in deep brain stimulation neurosurgery.
Jasmine Poirier has been one of the two canadians who had the opportunity to attend the Summer School in computational neuroscience in South Africa “IBRO-Simons Computational Neuroscience Imbizo 2018”. It has been a great and unique experience that our group research will benefit from. Welcome back!
Greg Sadetsky, graduate of the Biophotonics program in 2014, used his unparalleled programming skills and his regard for human life to program a tool for identifying people needing rescue during hurricane Harvey from their Twitter feed and Facebook pages, and helped prioritize research efforts for the military. He has received a letter from the army to thank him, and an article was written in FastCompany about him. From the article:
“In the meantime, his work on the Harvey map has made him rethink the kind of work he does on a regular basis, making it more likely he’ll want to devote his time and energy in the future to projects that can positively benefit humanity. And it’s had a major impact on his thinking ever since the storm.”
Congrats Greg. Nobody here is surprised.
Friday 19th of August was the last day of our trainees Jean-Michael and Gabriel. It was a pleasure to work with them and they had a productive summer. We wish them the best in their future endeavours!
We want to congratulate Alicja and Gabriel for their new baby, born the 2nd of August 2017. We wish them good luck and a happy new life with Charlotte as new parents!
