Brain diseases, neurological and psychiatric disorders are becoming a significant burden to society.
Availability of clinical, genomic, proteomic and neuroimaging data combined with recent advances in ICT, data mining and computational modelling makes it possible to extract unique biological signatures of diseases from multi-level descriptions of the brain. Future medicine will build on biological signatures of diseases rather than symptom descriptions for diagnosis, more accurate prognosis, new types of drug discovery pathways, new treatments and personalised medicine.
The benefits for the students were: Interaction with experts from academia and industry, hands-on learning experience on the latest technologies and knowledge gain from collaboration with fellows from other disciplines.
