Plasticity of the nervous system after external insults: From molecules to networks

This is the first Symposium hosted by the MICRONET consortium:

  • Aya Takeoka, Neuroelectronics Research Flanders, Belgium
    (Consortium coordinator, symposium chair)
  • Daniel Wójcik, Nencki Institute for Experimental Biology, Poland
    (symposium co-chair)
  • Magdalena Götz, Helmholtz Zentrum München Institute of Stem Cell Research, Germany
  • Francesco Roselli, University of Ulm School of Medicine, Germany
  • Marco Tripodi, Medical Research Council, United Kingdom

funded by the ERA-NET NEURON program under international program “European Research Projects on External Insults to the Nervous System”.

The symposium will be held on June 12th, 2017, at the lecture room at the 1st floor at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland. It is open for the public.
