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.
