NeuroSymposium 2020

Virtual Edition

The NeuroSymposium is going virtual. Our goals to promote interactions between the province's young neuroscientists remain intact, and we hope this exceptional edition will maintain some of our traditions as we go through challenging times. We are delighted to be joined by inspiring speakers from different disciplines in neuroscience.
