The aim of this interactive workshop was 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 have reported 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) presented novel avenues for exploiting large biological datasets for future classification of brain diseases which may lead to new strategies for developing therapeutics. Hands-on examples for using the tools developed by the Allen Institute and the HBP have been made available.

This workshop was open to the whole student community and early post-docs upon application. Applications from young female investigators were highly encouraged.
