An International Summer School on Advanced Optical Imaging and Photoactivation Techniques

The next edition of the Frontiers in Neurophotonics Summer School will take place June 11-21, 2017 at the Neurophotonics Centre. Trainees attending the school are selected through a competition. Applications will be submitted to a jury and evaluated on the basis of the quality of the candidate’s academic and research background, as well as their motivation and letters of recommendation.Application deadline is March 1st 2017. Go to the How to Apply page on the neurophotonics website to learn more about the application process. View the Summer School archives to view the list of previous speakers and sample programs of the school.

The Neurophotonics Centre once again hosted the International 'Frontiers in Neurophotonics' Summer School that took place on June 2-12, 2014. This was the 8th edition of the Summer School, and has once again been a great success. The School welcomes each year approximately 20 grad students and post-doctoral fellows from around the Globe. The program consists in a series of seminars given each morning by experts in the field of Neurophotonics, followed by hands-on experiments in the afternoon & evening; experiments that are conducted by the students themselves using the leading edge setups available at the Neurophotonics Centre, and with the help of our tutors.

Les 17 et 18 juin derniers avait lieu, à La Forêt Montmorency, la retraite de Neurophysique 2013. Près de 80 professeurs, chercheurs et étudiants du Centre de recherche de l’Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Québec (CRIUSMQ), de l’Université McGill et de l’Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont ont profité de l’atmosphère détendue et conviviale du lieu pour faire connaissance, présenter leurs travaux de recherche et échanger.

Proposed by these three collaborators, the project "Optical imaging and biosimulation platforms to speed CNS drug" will develop two innovative platforms to facilitate drug discovery and development. Initially, the imaging platform will empirically examine  the effect of drugs on neuronal proteins dynamics. After, a biostimulation platform for integrating signaling mechanisms at the synapse level will help to model and predict the effect of drugs on neuronal functions. The complementarity of platforms offer new horizons for research in the pharmaceutical field in addition to enabling collaboration between several actors from the research community and industry.

Frontiers in Neurophotonics is an opportunity to meet fellow researchers and students from around the world, discuss and discover the latest advances in live cell imaging techniques put in perspective by experimental challenges in the field of neuroscience. The school will combine tutorials given by experts in photonics and neuroscience and hands-on experiments involving advanced optical approaches to measure, manipulate and follow molecular events in living neuronal cells. The school is supported with funds from the Canadian Institute of Health Research (Neurophysics Training Program Grant), the Canadian Foundation for Innovation and the Canadian Institute for Photonics Innovation. For more information, please visit the summers school's website.

Given the very broad scope of the research interests of the Neurophysics group, many topics ranging from the  computational modeling of signalling networks through some in-vivo electro-optical approaches in the intact brain, as well as many imaging techniques were presented. This retreat also offered a unique occasion for students, post-docs and researchers to exchange on their research in an informal setting that was truly appreciated by all participants.
