Young Researchers Event 2021

EBRAINS for next-generation brain medicine

Brain diseases represent a considerable social and economic burden - 6 out of 10 disorders with highest DALYs (Disease-Adjusted Life Years), a health metric calculated as the sum of years of life lost and years lived with disability, are related to the brain. To develop new diagnostics and therapies, it is necessary to get deeper insights into brain organization. The Human Brain Project unites researchers and scientists from multiple fields to decode the relationship between brain structure and function, and its role in disease, with the help of highly advanced ICT tools. Therefore, the HBP is developing EBRAINS, a digital research infrastructure and an open source platform that allows scientists to seamlessly collaborate, to analyze data of healthy subjects and patients, to explore them in the Human Brain Atlas, and to share data and tools. This allows accelerating advancements in the fields of brain research and brain-related medicine. 

HBP and EBRAINS, together with the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences invite the scientific community, in particular early career researchers, to join the forthcoming Young Researchers Event 2021. During this two-day virtual conference participants can explore how EBRAINS supports the next generation of brain medicine. Topics like brain atlasing and simulation, translational neuroscience and AI applications will be addressed in interactive plenaries and hands-on workshops. The event also offers ample networking opportunities for participants to exchange with peers as well as renowned experts.
