Neuroscience Day 2021

Neuroscience Day 2021 - "Flowing Neuroscience"

  • Thursday 6 May 2021 - Virtual Conference

Virtual neuroscience conference hosted by NeuroCampus Aarhus

Thursday 6 May 2021, NeuroCampus Aarhus is hosting Neuroscience Day 2021!

The event is open to all students, researchers, clinicians, therapists, caregivers, foundations and organizations interested in neuroscience.

This year’s focus of the Neuroscience day is related to the crucial importance of adequate vascularization and flow in the CNS. Changes in perfusion – from molecular to macroscopic levels - results in a large number of diseases. We do however warmly welcome participants and abstracts from all areas of neuroscience. Read more about abstract submission here.

Active and ongoing NCA research will be presented during the day - all gathered around the 2019 Brain Prize Winner, Anne Joutel!
