    This is a hybrid event. It will take place in-person and will be available virtually for those that cannot travel.

    This two-day training course is designed to provide a basic working knowledge of sleep medicine. It is designed for neurology Residents and Fellows from across Canada as well as at practicing community neurologists who are interested in a comprehensive understanding of the current principles and practices dealing with patients with sleep disorders. This comprehensive course may serve to fulfill part of the preparation requirements for trainees seeking to complete the Royal College Examinations in Neurology.

The Canadian Epilepsy Research Initiative (CERI) invites you to attend a virtual symposium on Thursday, September 23 from 9:45 AM to 5:15 PM (ET) in conjunction with the CLAE 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting. This symposium offers an opportunity for both basic science and clinical researchers to come together to present and discuss new findings related to epilepsy.

We have a very exciting program of presentations on a spectrum of basic science and translational areas from presenters across the country, with a special focus on trainees and early-career investigators. We will also feature a keynote lecture by Dr. Alon Freidman (Dalhousie University) who will be presenting on Vascular Dysfunction in epilepsy: a new target for diagnosis and therapy?
