Conference 2020

March 20, 2020

Imaging immune activation and neurodegeneration in the brain

In 2020, Amsterdam Neuroscience again organizes the Translational Neuroscience Network meeting, a meeting in which we reach out to the Dutch Neuroscience community of other universities and medical centers.
This TN2 conference will take place on 20 March 2020.

This fifth TN2 meeting is shaped around the theme of ‘Imaging immune activation and neurodegeneration in the brain’. After the opening lecture two subsequent parallel symposium-programs will be organized, one on Neurodegeneration and one on Neuro-infection and –inflammation.
