Summer school – NEUREPIOMICS




This summer school aims at providing extensive training in cutting-edge research methods of neuroepidemiology. A large part of the course is dedicated to cutting-edge brain imaging and novel “omics” tools and their application in epidemiology of vascular and brain aging. This course will be taught by highly renowned international experts from across the world. It is intended to be strongly interactive with practical demonstrations.
This summer school is mainly designed for post-doctoral fellows and more senior researchers who have an interest in moving into this field, as well as PhD students specializing in this domain.

To ensure optimal interaction between attendees and faculty, the number of participants is limited to 40.

This summer school is a unique opportunity to learn the latest developments on the following topics:

  • Up-to-date overview of modern epidemiology of the most common neurological diseases
  • In depth description of innovative high-dimensional MRI markers of brain aging in large population-based cohort studies
  • Cutting-edge brain imaging and novel “omics” tools, and their application in epidemiology of vascular and brain aging
  • Large-scale genomic approaches (GWAS, Exome and Whole genome sequencing approaches), as well as epigenomics and metabolomics approaches for neurological diseases
  • Systems biology and translational approaches
  • Challenges and opportunities of planning new studies in the “omics” era, including translational, lifecourse, and e-cohort approaches.
  • “Hands on” for analyzing and visualizing omics data, including in relation with cutting-edge imaging
  • One to one interaction with international experts
  • An editor’s guide for submitting papers on neuroepidemiology with large-scale imaging and omics data for peer reviewed journals
  • Ethical considerations
