Recording of TN2 Webinar

With a series of Translational Neuroscience Network (TN2) webinars neuroscientists and industry partners are discussing imaging immune activation and neurodegeneration in the brain. The aim is to share knowledge and explore the translation of novel disease mechanisms into effective drug therapies, neurotechnologies and disease-monitoring diagnostic tools.

November 20, 2020

The first webinar took place on November 20, 2020. Watch the TN2 Webinar of 20 November 2020. The two keynote speakers Martijn van den Heuvel (Amsterdam UMC, Vrije Universiteit) and Laura Airas (University of Turku Finland) tell you all about imaging the brain with PET imaging techniques and the wiring of the human connectome.

Dr. Martijn van den Heuvel (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)
Principles of wiring of the human connectome – shaping health and disease?
Prof. dr. Laura Airas (University of Turku, Finland)
