Scott Bell made this discovery as a Ph.D. student in the laboratory of Dr. Carl Ernst, at the Douglas Hospital Research Centre, affiliated to McGill University. He currently is pursing a medical degree at the University of Calgary to help establish better medical care and outcomes for patients with rare neurodevelopmental disorders.
More videos are also available here, with submission instructions
CAN Trainee research features are a new opportunity for Canadian neuroscience trainees to showcase their research through short video features. We aim to make this a weekly feature and to share on our website and social media accounts, so please consider submitting a proposal to us!
This week’s feature is Nuria Daviu, a researcher in the laboratory of Dr. Jaideep Bains, at the Hotchkiss Brain Institute.
