2nd QBI-MCN Symposium - Systems Neuroscience

neurons1_rgbThe second QBI-MCN Systems Neuroscience Symposium was held at the LMU BioCenter from 9th-12th October, 2012. The event showcased the Munich neuroscience community as a promising environment for well-educated young scientists. A tangible exchange of doctoral researchers has already unfolded as a result of the first symposia in 2011 and 2012, and we look forward to building upon that basis.
