Berlin Neuroscience Meeting 2023
On October 5 and 6, the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin (ECN) and Cluster of Excellence NeuroCure hosted the annual Berlin Neuroscience Meeting at the GLS Campus, a wonderful green oasis in the heart of Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg.
More than 250 participants attended the meeting and contributed to its diverse program. We are very happy about the tremendous interest and strong engagement on both days.
The meeting started with three satellite events: ECN PhD students organized a round table as an opportunity for different ECN PhD cohorts to meet and exchange ideas. NeuroCure had its annual Members’ Assembly together with members of its international Scientific Advisory Board. A special part of the conference was the kick-off meeting between the ECN and the Jerusalem Brain Community (JBC), an association of faculty and student researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. At this satellite event, participants introduced various projects and discussed potential future collaborations.
On Thursday afternoon, Michael Brecht from the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin opened the BNM2023 with a talk on the biology of grasping in elephants. This enlightening and entertaining start was followed by two days of captivating keynote lectures by renowned international scientists such as Shir Atzil, Alison Barth, Hagai Bergman and Ray Dolan, exciting scientific talks on cutting-edge research by Berlin-based scientists, and many intense scientific discussions. The well-received poster sessions on both days allowed participants to share their scientific projects and connect with other research groups.
To stimulate networking and further discussions, participants gathered on both evenings for dinner and drinks, accompanied by a fantastic musical performance by ECN students on Thursday.
We want to thank you and all other international and local participants for your active contribution in making the Berlin Neuroscience Meeting 2023 such a success!
We hope to see you all again October 10/11, 2024 on the GLS Campus! Please save the date.
