As of September 1st, we are a separate research section within the department of Anatomy and Neurosciences! Multiscale Network Neuroscience or MULTINET aims to integrate theoretical insights and empirical findings across different scales of measurement of the brain, ranging from microscopic investigation of individual cells and circuits to whole-brain imaging and behavioral assessments, in order […]
After having to postpone her defense in March due to the pandemic, Dagmar Nieboer finally got to defend her dissertation ‘Healthy life, happy brain’? Congratulations Dagmar!
We welcome Eduarda to the lab! She will be helping us streamline our analysis pipelines and, most importantly, organize our shared codes on GitHub.
Jolanda will defend her dissertation “The impact of glioma on brain functioning and vice versa” on November 16th at 1.45pm!
Due to COVID-19, Dagmar’s dissertation defense has been moved to Monday September 28th, at 9.45am! We hope to know whether this will be a virtual or live event soon.
After presenting his thesis work on “Changes in resting-state functional brain networks of breast cancer patients treated with chemotherapy and their correlation with fatigue”, Biniam Melese won a young investigator award at ICCTF’s meeting (the International Cognition and Cancer Task Force)! Very well done, and a good reflection of Biniam’s efforts in this highly collaborative […]
Biniam Melese, who did his internship with Michiel de Ruiter, Sanne Schagen (both of the Netherlands Cancer Institute) and Linda on the brain network correlates of chemobrain in breast cancer patients, has received the honor of holding an oral presentation at the annual meeting of the International Cognition and Cancer Task Force! He will be elucidating […]
I joined the MULTINET Lab in January 2021 as a student of the Brain and Cognitive sciences Master (UvA). Both my Bachelor’s and Master’s programs were focused on training their students to become interdisciplinary researchers in the (huge) field of Neuroscience. While studying I tried hard to understand what that actually means and to find […]
Dagmar Nieboer will defend her thesis “Healthy life, happy brain?” on March 17th, at 1.45pm in the VU Aula. More info will follow!
I’m a young doctor with a fascination for human interaction and the secrets of the brain. 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 […]
