Very pleased to have welcomed Elahe Parham and Shadi Masoumi from Iran in the DCC Lab in January. Both will be working on the neurosurgical guidance project with their respective backgrounds in Electrical Engineering and Physics.
Thanks to all summer students! We concluded the summer with a kayak outing at St-Casimir and of course, a poutine. See you next summer!
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 made the cover of the Biophotonics magazine for the month of January that features a journalist report on coherent Raman microscopy, thanks to the many beautiful images the group has produced over the years (and the quotes of Prof Côté). Read the article for insight on the many uses of CARS microscopy.
