5th HBP School - Future Medicine: Brain Disease Neuroscience
27 November - 3 December 2017, Obergurgl, Austria
The availability of clinical, genomic, proteomic and neuroimaging data sets combined with recent advances in ICT, data mining and computational modelling makes it possible to uncover unique biological signatures of disease from multi-level descriptions of the brain.
Medicine of the future will capitalise on these biological signatures of diseases for faster diagnosis, more accurate prognosis and leverage the discovery of mechanistic pathways for new types of drugs, novel treatments and ultimately personalised medicine.
The programme of the 5th HBP School combines lectures and practical sessions. In small groups, students will be working on a week-long project.
Throughout the school, participants are encouraged to introduce new ideas and suggest original experimental techniques.
Speakers will be available throughout the week to go into details of concepts, provide deeper insights, answer questions or help with specific group requests. Application for this school is open to the whole student community and early post-docs.
Up to 40 applicants will be selected based on an academic decision by the Scientific Committee. Participants are required to submit an abstract on their current research with their application. Applications from young female investigators are highly encouraged.
