Sylvain Baillet

Sylvain_Baillet PhD.
McGill University

Sylvain Baillet has multidisciplinary scientific interests in data analytics for systems neuroscience. His overarching goal is to understand the integrative mechanisms of neural dynamics in brain systems, in health and disease. His lab has produced 300 publications and contributed to raise $35M in research funds. They also deliver concrete, practical tools and share free, open software and data resources with anyone interested. Sylvain has a track-record in leading and developing large research centers and in the institutional management of research portfolios.
