The free public lecture will feature talks from three distinguished Canadian neuroscientists:
● Dr. Gelareh Zadeh, Co-Director of Krembil Brain Institute and Senior Scientist at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, will unravel the complexities of brain tumours;
● Dr. Jaideep Bains, Co-Director and Senior Scientist at Krembil Brain Institute, will discuss the impact of stress on brain cells and their connections; and
● Dr. Jiwon Oh, Medical Director of the Barlo Multiple Sclerosis Program at St. Michael’s Hospital, will share her research into multiple sclerosis and how to treat it.

The event will culminate in a panel discussion moderated by Canadian broadcast journalist Mary Ito.

“We are very excited to help host this event to share cutting-edge research with the public,” says Dr. Jaideep Bains, Co-Director of the Krembil Brain Institute. “This is an excellent opportunity to showcase discoveries and the breadth of brain research that is being done in Canada.”
