The Canada Foundation for Innovation, Dialogues at UBC Robson Square, is presenting a special opportunity for the public to engage with Dr. Alan Evans, one of Canada’s top brain researchers.
Dr. Evans will offer his unique perspective on why brain research matters to Canadians and how his work with C-brain — a telecommunications-enabled effort to map the brain of Canadians — is revolutionizing our understanding of the human experience.
When: Wednesday, January 25, 2012
Time: 6 – 7:30 p.m., including Q&As and refreshments
Location: UBC Robson Square, 800 Robson Street
Room: Sauder School of Business Room C180
Dr. Evans and his team are leading the global race to use the latest technologies in brain imaging to diagnose, treat and research brain conditions.
