ABINEP Get Together 2018


When: 24.10.-25.10.2018

Where: 24.10.2018 tba; 25.10.2018 Art Museum in the Monastery of Our Lady Magdeburg, Regierungsstraße 4-6

Further Information:

The Get Together 2018 is an event hosted by the CRC 854, which was recently funded for the third time, and coorganized by CRC 779 and ABINEP. It aims in fostering collaborations and networks between early career scientists of all three clusters on the Medical Campus. We will start with a social event in the afternoon of the 24th which will hopefully enable everyone to get to know each other a bit (better). And which will be lots of fun as well, don’t miss it! On the 25th we have planned a varied and interesting scientific programme with introductions about the two CRCs and ABINEP and short talks from a number of participants from each of the three clusters, as well as two short workshop-type sessions with renowned coach Deborah Ruggieri.

The detailed program can be found here.


What is ABINEP?

The international Graduate school (GS) on Analysis, Imaging, and Modelling of Neuronal and Inflammatory Processes (ABINEP) is based on the two internationally recognized biomedical research foci of the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg (OVGU), Neurosciences and Immunology.

ABINEP aims at fostering cutting edge research projects in rising sub-disciplines of these research areas, which are currently supported by several German Research foundation (DFG)- and European Community (EU)-funded collaborative projects in Magdeburg (including the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Centers SFBs 779 and 854 and associated graduate schools, as well as DFG TRRs 31 and 62). The program includes scientists from the Medical Faculty/ University Hospital Magdeburg (MED) and the Faculty of Natural Sciences (FNW) of the OVGU, the Institute for Neurobiology (LIN) and German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE), both located in Magdeburg, the Helmholtz Centre of Infection Research in Braunschweig as well as international collaborators.

To further strengthen the international interconnection of these research foci, 21 projects were defined to educate excellent international PhD student candidates in any of the 4 ABINEP topical modules:

1) Neuroinflammation: Inflammatory processes in neurodegeneration

2) Neurophysiology and Computational Modelling of Neuronal Networks

3) Immunosenescence: Infection and immunity in the context of aging

4) Human Brain Imaging for diagnosing neurocognitive disorders
