Group outing at Tête d’allumette, with pic-nic and micro-brewery stop afterwards.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

We are at Photonics West 2016 in San Francisco. Damon is presenting his exciting results on Neurosurgical guidance with fiber-based spectral measurements in the brain which he obtained with Nicolas, Alicja is presenting her work (and that of undergraduate Mohamed Bahdine) on spinal cord scattering characterization, and Patrick is presenting the foundation of his new theoretical work (also obtained with the help of undergraduate Maxime Tremblay, Mathieu Bélanger, Bertrand de Dorlodot, et Ph.D. student Aleix Pau Pagès) on “Network Inference and Characterization of Nervous systems”.
The research center is recruiting (and so is our group!). Be part of a Research center at the leading edge of technological developments and their applications in neurosciences.
As part of the L’Oréal Canada For Women in Science with the support of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, Dr Alicja Gasecka (second on the right), postdoctoral fellow in neuroscience, physics and optical microscopy, received one of two awards in Excellence Search L’Oréal-UNESCO 2015, worth $ 20,000 each. This initiative wishes to support major research projects undertaken by postdoctoral Canadians.
Welcome to Pierre Desaulniers Ing. who joins the group for a technology maturation project where three patents from the Research Centre will be transferred to BLIQc, a microscopy company. He comes from the group of NSERC Industrial Chair of Optics Design Professor Simon Thibault from Laval University where he was research associate.
The group is expanding! We announce the birth of Tanahé Akitegetse, Cléophace’s second daughter.
This is finally out: our most exciting (patented!) discovery is finally published: “Maintaining polarization in polarimetric multiphoton microscopy”. Congratulations to everyone involved.
Many positions available in the group!
- Fast imaging of live animals for multiple sclerosis
- Development of rapid stabilization systems for multiphoton imaging
- Polarization-sensitive coherent Raman imaging for molecular order of myelin
- Development of imaging the basal activity of microglia as a biomarker of multiple sclerosis
- Network Inference and functional units: extracting neural networks in vivo
- Super-resolution imaging of synapses
- Development of optical fiber systems for stimulation and measurements in the spinal cord for chronic pain
Contact Daniel Côté directly, with subject “Summer internship/M.Sc. or Ph.D.” with a transcript.
Congratulations to Steve and everyone else for this publication on “Automated method for the segmentation and morphometry of nerve fibers in large-scale CARS images of spinal cord tissue”. The MATLAB code will be available shortly.
