TechTalk Brain

Thursday 1 December 2016
Café 'De Stal'
Darwinweg 1
2333 CR Leiden

Researchers in Leiden have a long tradition of partnering with local Leiden or Dutch companies. These are celebrated across a broad spectrum of relationships, from informal connections, shared studentships and bilateral R&D collaborations to extensive consortia arrangements with complex public/private funding.

Leiden University Knowledge Exchange Office Luris provides support to expand these relationships and is always looking forward to exploring how such connections can be created or strengthened. One such initiative is the TechTalk programme. TechTalks are aimed at bringing the research community together, whether based in business or in academia.





This TechTalk will focus on our brain. We’ll have a closer look at a variety of lines of brain research, as well as at development of diagnostic and therapeutic technologies. The TechTalk will help us understand the complex working of the brain. We invite you all to share the insights of these and other speakers during the TechTalk Brain.

TechTalks are organised by Luris, Leiden Bio Science Park Foundation, Centre of Expertise Genomics in Leiden Generade, 'Centrum Bioscience en Diagnostiek' (CBD) of the University of Applied Sciences Leiden and LUMC 'Boerhaave Nascholing'. TechTalks are aimed at bringing the research community together across the Leiden Bio Science Park, whether based in business or in academia, and others who are interested.
