Ontario Brain Institute – Talk and Listen TourExport this event to calendar

Thursday, November 6, 2014 — 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM EST

The Office of Research is hosting the Ontario Brain Institute (OBI) on November 6, 2014. The OBI invites faculty and staff to share new and exciting research initiatives taking place at the University of Waterloo in neuroscience or neuroscience related areas.

The OBI funds pan-Ontario, multi-disciplinary neuroscience research programs that bring together researchers, clinicians, industry, patients, and their advocates to maximize the impact on patient care. To support these programs and the development of the neurotechnology cluster in Ontario, the OBI seeks to identify assets and capabilities within the province, and facilitate new partnerships to foster discovery and deliver innovative products and services that improve the lives of those living with brain disorders.

The OBI will open by providing an overview of the collaborative initiatives in the areas of research, informatics and analytics, commercialization, entrepreneurship, and patient engagement. Following this OBI invites faculty and their graduate students to highlight neuroscience-related research and recent achievements (~5 minutes informal overview – presentations optional).  If you are interested in participating in this session, please RSVP to Cara Fletcher, Office of Research, by October 31, 2014.

The OBI team will also be available in the afternoon to tour labs and work spaces. If you are interested in hosting the OBI team for a lab tour please RSVP to Jenine Paul, OBI, to confirm and arrange a time and location.
