As we welcome the (hopefully) warmer weather of springtime, we are pleased to release our Spring 2023 issue of IMS Magazine focusing on Children’s Health. We also welcome all the new students who joined IMS during the Winter term, some of whom have decided to be a part of the IMS Magazine team!
In this issue, we highlight the work of Drs. Helen Dimaras, Cathy Barr, Uri Tabori, and Brian Ballios, who are conducting innovative research in a variety of areas in children’s health including neurodevelopmental disorders, paediatric oncology, genetics, and retinal diseases. We have several thought-provoking Viewpoint articles examining topics such as social media and youth mental health, the use of astrological signs, neurotechnology and neurorights, and attachment theory. This issue also includes an insightful book review on Antidepressed by Beverly Thompson and the validity of the “serotonin hypothesis” of depression, a travel bite describing one of our writers’ experience at a stem cell conference in Vancouver, and an article from our good friends at Raw Talk Podcast covering one of their episodes on burnout in healthcare.
As always, we would like to thank the new and returning members of the IMS Magazine team – we could not highlight the incredible work going on at IMS without you. We hope you enjoy reading this issue have a rejuvenating spring season. We look forward to working on our next issue coming in the summer!
