Educational events

With the goal to further collaborative research and learning into conditions that affect the brain and mind, the uOBMRI hosts a number of educational events throughout the year that are open to both internal and external audiences:

Please follow our Facebook page to stay updated on events with our Educational Partners.

The Academy of Mindfulness and Contemplative Studies (AMCS), at the Ottawa Brain and Mind Research Institute (uOBMRI) is an interdisciplinary group of faculty and students who share a common interest in the study and application of mindfulness and contemplation.

The vision for the academy is to be a place where members of the university community will be able to train in mindfulness and other contemplative practices and to be a central resource from which mindfulness and contemplative methods and practices will be designed, researched, taught, and assessed in the university including university-affiliated hospitals and research institutes.

The Academy will serve as a focal point from which educators in the practice of mindfulness and in contemplative studies will be able to share knowledge and expertise and disseminate findings.

The Academy of Mindfulness and Contemplative Studies, in Collaboration with the uOBMRI is pleased to present Free Virtual Lectures in 2022.  

Community fundraising events

The uOBMRI and its partners host a variety of fundraising events throughout the year. A number of our important research discoveries would not be possible without the support of the community through these events.

MS in Motion is a fundraising campaign to shed light on the ongoing journey of Canadians living with multiple sclerosis. Did you know that Canada has the highest MS rate in the world? An estimated 100,000 Canadians live with the disease, which can be challenging as there is no known cure today.
