1st HBP Curriculum workshop series
New horizons in clinical neuroscience: Brain medicine for non-specialists
5-7 July 2017, Medical University Innsbruck, Austria
https://education.humanbrainproject.eu/web/1st-hbp-curriculum-brain-medicine

Description
The aim of this interactive workshop is to deepen and complete the online course on brain medicine for non-specialists with the most recent advances in research of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders. Lectures and tutorials by international experts will report the state of the art of research and treatment of brain diseases. Representatives of the Allen Institute for Brain Science (AI, USA) and the Human Brain Project (HBP, Europe) will present novel avenues for exploiting large biological datasets for future classification of brain diseases, which may lead to new strategies for developing therapeutics.

Workshop Structure
Lectures
Discussion sessions
Hands-on tutorials
Social event
Hands-on examples for using the tools developed by the Allen Institute and the HBP will be made available.

Application
This workshop is open to the whole student community and early post-docs upon application.
Applications from young female investigators are highly encouraged.
Application is required (https://education.humanbrainproject.eu/web/hbp-education-portal/educationalevents) as space may be limited.
Applicants selected for participation will be informed within two weeks after the application deadline. There is no registration fee. Seven travel grants will be available upon request (European students only). Accommodation can be provided for 30 students (first come, first served).

The Venue
The Medical University of Innsbruck is a young research centre with a long tradition: It was one of the first four faculties (Philosophy 1669, Faculty of Law 1670, Faculty of Theology 1670 and Faculty of Medicine 1674) of the University of Innsbruck and has been an important flagship for the university throughout its 340-year history.
In the heart of Tyrol, Austria and consequently in the heart of the Alps, the Medical University of Innsbruck provides the best conditions for successful research, studies and teaching at an attractive location.
It is the most important medical research and training facility in western Austria.
