An event honouring Professor Brigitte Kieffer, Scientific Director at the Douglas Institute Research Centre and laureate of the L'Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science Award, was held on September 29, 2014.

The event, "Brain Science in Montreal, just got even better" presented by L'Oréal Canada in collaboration with the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, aimed to raise funds to allow Prof. Kieffer to pursue her ambitious research to understand the biological causes of mental illness in order to make advances that will allow us to improve the quality of life of people suffering from them.

The Foundation and Professor Kieffer would like to thank all sponsors for their support. Over $100,000 was raised thanks to their generosity.
