Biology of Brain Disorders 2019 is a scientific and training event which proposes an alternative view of brain disorders, with a focus on mechanisms operating across different disorders rather than the pathophysiology of each specific disorder. The main goal is to deepen our understanding of brain pathologies and to consider treatments currently used in some disorders for repositioning to others.
The students will experience a transformational learning environment to foster personal and professional growth and enable the translation of knowledge and ideas into innovative strategies for diagnostic and treatment of brain disorders.
Together with basic lectures given by leaders in neuroscience, participants will be taught idea generation, translation and validation; creative problem solving (including Design Thinking); storytelling and communications; learn business methodologies; and leadership development.
The event is open to students, and professionals with a basic background in neuroscience, psychiatry and neurology, and/or to entrepreneurs that are considering investing in the field of brain disorders.
An empowering experience to embrace the challenges and opportunities of innovation for the care of brain disorders.
