November 2023: Day of Science

During the Day of Science at the Antwerp Zoo (Dag van de Wetenschap), our researchers of the imec-Vision Lab, Bio-Imaging Lab and Experimental Neurology Group showcased their research topics. Through live-demos and fun games, we introduced people of all ages to the topics of medical imaging techniques and detection of brain disorders. 

Thank you to the teams for sharing their enthusiasm for science!

May 2023: NEUROday 2023

In May, we organised the first edition of NEUROday, a collaboration between the µNEURO Research Centre of Excellence, the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Faculty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences, MOVANT and the VIB-Center for Molecular Neurology. On this first edition, we welcomed more than 100 neuroscientists of the University of Antwerp, across faculties and research groups.

It was an inspiring research day filled with a broad array of neuroscience topics, presented in the form of interesting keynote talks, excellent NEUROpitches, and an interactive poster session. The event offered a comprehensive overview of the neuroscience research at our university, providing new ideas for interdisciplinary collaborations and enhancing our science communication skills.
