Did you know that there are over 800 neuroscience researchers, 130 brain-related companies, and 100 institutions involved in neuroscience in Ontario? On Wednesday, June 4, the Ontario Brain Institute (OBI) will be hosting an introduction to the Neuroscience Asset Map, a dynamic tool that allows users ranging from patients, researchers, companies, and not-for-profit organizations to discover and connect with neuroscience resources across Ontario. Join Kirk Nylen, Director of Outreach at OBI, and colleagues Lucas Ng and Shiva Amiri, for a presentation and discussion at the OBI office in downtown Toronto, or participate via webinar. The event is free, but space is limited, so preregistration is required at obi-ktecop.eventbrite.ca.
The OBI seeks to create opportunities and resources for researchers, brain-related companies, and neuroscience institutions to work together in new ways. One such resource is the Neuroscience Asset Map, launched in September 2013. Through this tool, OBI hopes to facilitate interactions among stakeholder groups and catalyze opportunities for collaboration. OBI plans to continually evolve the Neuroscience Asset Map and would like to engage participants in a discussion about possible future directions.
This event is hosted by the Canadian Knowledge Transfer and Exchange Community of Practice. For more information, visit www.ktecop.ca.
