First HBP Curriculum Workshop Series– New Horizons in Clinical Neuroscience: Brain Medicine for Non-specialists
July 5, 2017 - July 7, 2017
- Medical University Innsbruck, Austria
The aim of this interactive workshop is to deepen and complete the online course on brain medicine for non-specialists with the most recent advances in research of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders. Lectures and tutorials by international experts will report the state-of-the-art of research and treatment of brain diseases. Representatives of the Allen Institute for Brain Science (AI, USA) and the Human Brain Project (HBP, Europe) will present novel avenues for exploiting large biological datasets for future classification of brain diseases which may lead to new strategies for developing therapeutics. Hands-on examples for using the tools developed by the Allen Institute and the HBP will be made available.
This workshop is open to the whole student community and early post-docs upon application. Applications from young female investigators are highly encouraged.
Application is required as space may be limited. Applicants selected for participation will be informed within two weeks after the application deadline.
There is no registration fee. Seven travel grants will be available upon request (European students only). Accommodation can be provided for 30 students (first come, first serve).
Note: The workshop is a supplement to the online course ‘HBP Curriculum - Neurobiology for non-specialists‘. It is recommended for workshop participants to attend the online course as a basis for the workshop. During the workshop, participants will have the possibility of taking an exam about the content of the HBP online course ‘HBP Curriculum - Neurobiology for non-specialists‘.
