The Feindel Brain Imaging Lecture Series @ The BIC

Monday, July the 7th, 1:00 pm.
de Grandpré Communications Centre
Montreal Neurological Institute, 3801 University Street, Montreal, H3A 2B4

Alzheimer’s Disease Imaging: What’s Genes Got To Do, Got To Do With It?

Dr. Aman Badhwar
Centre de recherche de l’Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal

———————————————————————————
The Feindel Brain Imaging Lecture Series features informal lectures on brain imaging presented at the Neuro’s McConnell Brain Imaging Centre (BIC) by experts in the field.

These lectures are named in honour of Dr. William Feindel (1918-2014), former Director of the Neuro (1972 -1984) and Founding Director of the BIC (1984–88). Dr. Feindel’s presence and contribution will be greatly missed at our weekly Brain Imaging Lectures, where he almost always asked the final, most-germane question of the day: one that usually bridged the clinical and research realms, and that brought together the past, the present, and the future of brain science.

This semester, our Lecture Series is being held in conjunction with the BIC’s new Open Methods Meetups (OMM): a forum for discussing hands-on technical issues, brainstorming problem-solving for specific projects, and sharing personal tricks-of-the-trade. This will be a great venue for those associated with the BIC to transfer knowledge and to get to know one another.
