Munich Brain Day 2024

Close to 400 participants met on Campus Martinsried on April 30th to hear and speak about the most recent research in neuroscience


The one-day event brought the Munich neuroscience community together, fostering the exchange of ideas and catalyzing innovative interdisciplinary research. The format aimed to raise the profile of early career scientists, with a particular emphasis on increasing diversity.

In addition to 20-minute short talks, students and postdocs were able to present their work in a datablitz and poster session. Lucrative prizes went to the best posters.

The day was rounded out by a plenary lecture by Paola Arlotta (Harvard), who was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences (GSN-LMU) as part of the event. The lecture was hosted by Prof. Benedikt Grothe, Founder and Director of MCN-LMU and GSN-LMU, and the laudatio held by Prof. Magdalena Götz. Munich Brain Day concluded with a social event.
