Welcome to the GRSNC
Since its beginnings almost 50 years ago (1970), the GRSNC (CNS Research Group) (previously called the Center for Research in Neurological Sciences) has been a multi-disciplinary and trans-departmental group focussing on neuroscience and has been a pillar of this field on the campus of the Université de Montréal.
There are currently 33 regular members. The laboratories of the members are located on the campus of the Université de Montréal, many of which in the Paul-G.-Desmarais building. The GRSNC includes members from the Faculty of Medicine (21), the Faculty of dentistry (5), the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (3), the Faculty of pharmacy (2), and the École Polytechnique de Montréal (2).
The mission of the GRSNC is to promote multi-disciplinary research in the Neurosciences, in particular as it concerns the structure and function of the central nervous system in terms of circuitry. Members of the GRSNC supervise numerous graduate students and postdocs, as well as undergraduate research interns. In partnership with other scientists interested in the neurosciences on the campus of the Université de Montréal, notably in the school of optometry and in the department of psychology, the GRSNC intends to pursue its development as a major player in basic neuroscience at the Université de Montréal. We aim to take advantage of opportunities to recruit new scientists and explore novel avenues for research in this priority research area for the Université de Montréal.
I am sure that the future will be an extremely active and invigorating period for the GRSNC.
Director of the GRSNC
