International Journal of Molecular Sciences Events
13–15 June 2018 Biennial Meeting of Rhine-Main Neuroscience Network
The Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, the Goethe University Frankfurt, and the Technische Universität Darmstadt have selected neuroscience as their research focus and have signed a contract of cooperation in the biomedical sciences to this end.
The contract will ensure an aligned strategic plan in developing neurosciences at both locations. Specifically, the contract guarantees harmonization of the hiring strategy, enables researchers and students alike to utilize facilities at both institutions, and provides the formal basis for common research activities such as CRCs or CRUs. Moreover, the University Mainz Campus and its Medical Center are a mere 37-minute drive from the University Hospital in Frankfurt and just a 42-minute drive from the Campus at Frankfurt Riedberg with its Max Planck Institutes (MPIs) and University Biocenter.
Topics of this year’s meeting will be:
- Mechanisms of pain persistence and relief
- Gene regulatory mechanisms in brain development and function
- The neuroscience of autism spectrum disorder
- Synaptic plasticity and learning in neuronal networks
- Neurophysiology of cognitive functions
