A capstone of the Center’s first year, the symposium will cover science innovation, education, new project development, career development, governance, diversity & inclusion, team building, and will feature our main event, a keynote presentation by Dr. Edith Hamel, Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery, McGill University.
