QBI’s community outreach program is designed to engage people interested in discovering more about neurological disorders. The program’s success is proof of the public’s thirst to learn more about the latest developments in neuroscience.

In addition to regular tours through QBI’s world-class facilities, the Institute’s researchers frequently conduct lectures, talks and discussions that are the anchor of the outreach program. This interaction – in libraries, bookstores, hospitals and other community settings across the country – has continually proven beneficial for the public and scientists alike. Engaging with people who will potentially benefit from QBI’s research in the longer term provides an additional impetus for the neuroscientists to advance their work.

Community Talks

Would you like a scientist to talk to your community or business group about the fundamental research being undertaken in brain disorders such as dementia, motor neuron disease, stroke or psychiatric illness? Perhaps you would be interested in hearing about the work our scientists are doing with bees, such as how they navigate - did you know that some bees are left antennaed?
