With a series of Translational Neuroscience Network (TN2) webinars neuroscientists and industry partners are discussing imaging immune activation and neurodegeneration in the brain. The aim is to share knowledge and explore the translation of novel disease mechanisms into effective drug therapies, neurotechnologies and disease-monitoring diagnostic tools.

The first webinar took place on November 20, 2020. Watch the TN2 Webinar of 20 November 2020. The two keynote speakers Martijn van den Heuvel (Amsterdam UMC, Vrije Universiteit) and Laura Airas (University of Turku Finland) tell you all about imaging the brain with PET imaging techniques and the wiring of the human connectome.
