NICO @BraYn Meeting

Genoa, 29-30 June 2018
Bainstorming Research Assembly for Young Neuroscientists
The 1st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Italian Young Neuroscientists

There was so much NICO at the BraYn , the congress specifically aimed at young researchers under the age of 40 specialized in the field of Neuroscience.
The main goal of this meeting is to encourage young researchers from different laboratories across Italy to meet, connect, collaborate and share in a space where they can exchange their knowledge and ideas, thereby establishing collaborations between groups.

In addition to the large group of NICO's young researchers who attended the meeting, our researcher Enrica Boda (Assistant Professor RTD in Human Anatomy, research group of  Physiopathology of neural stem cells ) was a member of the BraYn Scientific committee .


Thanks to Eu-Brain support, the committee awarded 3 different prizes : one for the Best Oral Presentation (500 €) and one for the Best Poster presentation (250 €)
For the Best oral/poster presentation on PERINATAL NEUROLOGY (250 €) the committee awarded our researcher Marina Boido - research group Brain develpment and disease - with her talk:

Increasing Agrin Function Antagonizes Muscle Atrophy and Motor Impairment in Spinal Muscular Atrophy
