Symposium 2015


Campus Alberta Neuroscience's 2015 Symposium was its largest event to date, with nearly 250 participants from across Alberta gathering in Calgary for the three-day program. The unique, multi-focus event brought together experts in depression research and translation as well as those in the general neurosciences for collaborative, multi-disciplinary presentations and discussion. The events were linked by a keynote address from Dr. Pierre Blier, who provided an engaging presentation on how advances in neuroscience have been critical to treating depression. The neuroscience-focused program included keynote addresses by prominent researchers from the Universities of Alberta, Calgary and Lethbridge and a closing keynote by Dr. Igor Timofeev, all of whom provided an overview of the importance of integrative techniques and technologies for expediting discoveries in neuroscience. Feedback from Symposium participants was overwhelmingly positive, and CAN looks forward to welcoming the Alberta neuroscience community to the 5th Annual Symposium in Edmonton in October 2016.
