Congratulations to our researchers!

Congratulations to Drs. Mallar Chakravarty, Cecilia Flores, Jamie Near, Judes Poirier, Lalit Srivastava, and Florian Storch, all recipients of a research grant from the Discovery Grants Program of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

The projects that will benefit from that funding are:

  • Multi-variate and multi-modal modelling of neuroimaging data to better understand brain ageing (Dr. Chakravarty)
  • Netrin-1 mediates stress-induced plasticity of adult pyramidal neurons (Dr. Flores)
  • Development of advanced magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging techniques for rapid high-resolution mapping of brain metabolite levels (Dr. Near)
  • Cholesterol-related genes in response to brain deafferentation in normal and transgenic mice (Dr. Poirier)
  • Role of dopamine in adolescent maturation of prefrontal cortical circuits and associated behaviors (Dr. Srivastava)
  • Dissecting the mechanistic basis of meal timing and food anticipation: a role for the DUO (Dr. Storch)

Congratulations to you all!
