5th HBP School – Future Medicine
Brain Disease Neuroscience: Influencing clinical diagnoses and treatments by data mining analysis- and modelling-driven neuroscience


Obergurgl, Austria, 27 Nov. – 3 Dec. 2017
https://education.humanbrainproject.eu/web/5th-school/home

Description

The availability of clinical, genomic, proteomic and neuroimaging data sets combined with recent advances in ICT, data mining and computational modelling makes it possible to uncover unique biological signatures of disease from multi-level descriptions of the brain. Medicine of the future will capitalise on these biological signatures of diseases for faster diagnosis, more accurate prognosis and leverage the discovery of mechanistic pathways for new types of drugs, novel treatments and ultimately personalised medicine.
The programme of the 5th HBP School combines lectures and practical sessions. In small groups, students will be working on a week-long project. Throughout the school, participants are encouraged to introduce new ideas and suggest original experimental techniques. Speakers will be available throughout the week to go into details of concepts, provide deeper insights, answer questions or help with specific group requests.

The venue
The 5th HBP School will take place at the Obergurgl University Center, which is located right next to the ski slopes and hiking trails and only five minutes’ walk from the village centre. It was founded in 1951 by the Obergurgl federal Sports Centre in cooperation with the Alpine Research Centre of the University of Innsbruck. Over the past decades, numerous renowned mountain guides, ski instructors, researchers and scientists gathered here to collaborate on major contributions to sports and science in the Alps.

Obergurgl is located in the Ötztal Alps in Tyrol, Austria, and part of the municipality of Sölden. The village is located 1,907 m (6,257 ft.) above sea level and is primarily a tourist resort with only about 400 permanent residents. Due to its remote location, it is very popular not only for tourists but also among scientists and researchers.
