Two of our collaborative ideas have received funding from Amsterdam Neuroscience! The first is on linking postmortem MS pathology to large-scale brain network failure (PI: Menno Schoonheim, in the Neuroinflammation theme), the second on multiscale correlates of cognition (PI: Natalia Goriounova in the Systems and Network Neuroscience theme). Much bridging of scales planned for the coming years!

Working in a neurology department, made me realise that the interaction between research, cure and care is viable to improve care for our patients. Neuro-oncology is a field with great challenges. Patients with a brain tumor still have poor […]
