We are grateful to the PERFORM Centre for their support of our new microbiome2brain project exploring changes in the gut microbiome and brain activity associated with an exercise training intervention. We would also like to congratulate Vicky Brunet who was awarded a NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award to work on this project.

Finally we would like to thank Concordia University for their support of our Team Startup grant that will build a high-resolution map of cancer immunity in HER2+ breast cancer patients.

This year workshop at McGill University’s Bellairs Research Station in Holetown (Barbados) brings together a broad group of researchers with expertise in developing single-cell genomics or massively parallel reporter assays, or computational approaches associated with these technologies. Collectively, participants have experience in a variety of contexts from exploring microbial and tumor microenvironments, to epigenetic and transcriptional regulation.

See you there!
