Welcome to SOMA

The Student of McMaster Neuroscience Association (SOMA) is a student organization that aims to enrich student life, enhance the academic experience, and provide community outreach opportunities to the graduate students in the Neuroscience Graduate program. We represent students that work in various faculties across McMaster, such as:

1. Faculty of Science

2. Faculty of Health Sciences

3. Faculty of Engineering

4. Faculty of Social Science

5. Faculty of Humanities

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the program, students are located at different parts of the McMaster University campus and Hamilton Health Sciences hospitals. The Neuroscience graduate program is a rapidly growing program with an increasing student body that all share an interest in the neuroscience field. SOMA acts to bring these students together and provide a venue for more interaction and collaboration.
