Neurobiology of Psychosis Journal Club

This journal club provides an opportunity for students, postdocs, and faculty to discuss recent research and issues pertinent to severe mental illness. Graduate students and postdocs are encouraged to present topics relevant to their own studies, and everyone is welcome to attend. A multidisciplinary perspective on psychosis is promoted, with discussions related to genetics, imaging, animal models, biochemistry/molecular biology, as well as clinical research.

The meetings are held in the Boardroom of the BC Mental Health and Addictions Research Institute located at 938 W 28th Ave (Women’s and Children’s Hospital Site). Papers are chosen by one person for each meeting, and are emailed to participants one week prior to the meeting. Check out the events calendar for a schedule of meetings.

For more information or to be notified of the papers discussed, please email psychosisjournalclub@hotmail.com.

Neuroscience Lab Pizza Seminars

These meetings are a series of short talks highlighting unpublished work by UBC neuroscience labs. Following a short introduction by the supervisors, each presenting student and postdoctoral fellow gives a 10 minute talk. After that, there’s plenty of time for discussions and pizza!

The sessions are held in the Brain Research Centre Conference Room. Check out the events calendar for a schedule of meetings.
