Dear Manitoba Neuroscience Network members
I am in the process of compiling a list of invited speakers for
2015-2016 year. I would appreciate if you can help me out for the
speaker selection. If you know of people with high impact in your
field, this is your chance to see them in Winnipeg. A quick email will
be sufficient to get me started with the communications.
Looking forward to your suggestions,
MNN Seminar Coordinator
You are invited to a talk by Dr. Demitre Serletis, MD, PhD, FRCSC, FAANS, a Neurosurgeon visiting from Little Rock, Arkansas (University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences).
Dr. Serletis' talk is titled "Epilepsy Surgery in the 21st Century".
Friday, July 17. 12:00-13:00.
Theatre B, Basic Medical Sciences Building.
Dr. Serletis completed his MD at the University of Calgary in 2003. He went on to complete a PhD (Physiology and Biomedical Engineering) and Neurosurgery residency at the University of Toronto. Subsequently, he completed the Pediatric/Adult Epilepsy Surgery Fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic, a unique and prestigious fellowship that provides highly specialized hypothesis-based epilepsy and high volume surgical training. Dr. Serletis currently holds an academic position at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and established and now directs Arkansas' only comprehensive Epilepsy Surgery Program. He has also founded and grown the states' only non-profit organization for epilepsy patients and their families.
In addition to epilepsy, Dr. Serletis' clinical interests are pediatric neurosurgery, functional neurosurgery, and neuro-oncology. As a surgeon-scientist, he has unique research interests in epilepsy neurodynamics and electrophysiology, and has published numerous papers in this field.
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Serletis.

The Biomedical Engineering (BME) program is holding a one-day conference, where its morning session is dedicated to poster session and students' presentation competition. It is open to all students across U of Manitoba, whose research project is related to BME. The poster competition presentations will be in two categories of graduate and undergraduate groups. There will be cash prizes for the top three winners in each group. The deadline for a 300-word (maximum) abstract submission is Friday Sept. 4th.
This one-day conference will be a great opportunity for students interested in BME, not only to gain practice in presentation, receiving feedback across the breadth of health and engineering research, but also to network with industries representatives and researchers in the field.
For more information on the conference program, please see its webpage at: http://biomedcon.com/
I would encourage you to take this opportunity to participate, and to pass the message to your colleagues as well.
