Neuropharmacology is one of the most promising disciplines of pharmacology and neuroscience in terms of its long-term perspectives. This is because neurological and psychiatric diseases are amongst the less effectively treated disorders by the current therapeutic armada. There is therefore lots of room for major discoveries and for the development of novel therapeutic strategies. A M.Sc., Ph.D. or postdoctoral fellowship in our group could thus represent an important milestone preparing you to a variety of exciting careers.
As an example, please find below the career profile of some of the students and fellows that recently graduate from the Trudeau laboratory :
