BrainsCAN notice for the neuroscience community regarding COVID-19

March 19, 2020  -  BrainsCAN Communications

As we continue to monitor the evolving situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, BrainsCAN is taking necessary precautions and aligning with direction from the university. As such, BrainsCAN staff, including BrainsCAN Research Core staff, have transitioned to remote work for the foreseeable future. 

All BrainsCAN staff are still accessible by email and Slack. Zoom is our primary video conferencing tool available for those wishing to book a virtual meeting. Please note that while BrainsCAN staff are working from home, some working hours will change to accommodate childcare responsibilities. These changes are taking place on a case-by-case basis; please connect with the BrainsCAN team member for specific details.

Based on the directive from the provincial government, Western moved to an essential services model on Tuesday, March 24, continuing for 14 days. All buildings are now closed and are not accessible by keycard. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at
