Montreal Neuroethics Network

The Montreal Neuroethics Network promotes neuroethics training, education and dialogue by exposing various audiences to neuroethics issues; fostering collaboration and mutual learning to ensure Montreal's leadership in addressing ethical and social issues in neuroscience and healthcare delivery through inter-institutional collaborations. The Network’s main goal is to organize neuroethics talks, seminars, workshops and symposia in Montreal. The Network welcomes new collaborations and opportunities to help develop neuroethics in Montreal in both Academia and in the community. Please write to neuroethics@ircm.qc.ca for further information.
