Project

VirtualBrainCloud

The central goal of this project is the development of a cloud-based platform for biomedical research and clinical decision-making that helps to improve early patient-specific diagnosis and treatment of NDD and has substantial potential for significant positive socioeconomic impact.

The platform integrates several aims that revolve around early diagnosis, prognosis, and personalized treatment of neurodegenerative diseases (NDD) like Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD). It is becoming increasingly clear that meeting this objective requires a multifactorial approach that takes into account individual genetic, metabolic and environmental aspects, and that integrates them with the understanding of the biophysical processes underlying NDD.

Conferences & Events

Brain Connectivity Workshop

UPDATE: This event has been postponed until next year.

We are excited to announce that Dr. Petra Ritter will talk at the Brain Connectivity Workshop in Toronto in June 2020. Registration for the event will open in January 2020 and until then you can sign up for more info or check out the preliminary program here.

The aim of Brain Connectivity Workshop is to establish a dialogue between researchers in computational neuroscience, neuroscience methodology and experimental neuroscience about the emerging field of brain connectivity.

Next year's Brain Connectivity Workshop is conveniently before OHBM in Montreal, Canada (June 26-30).

Educational Course at OHBM 2020

UPDATE: Selected events will now take place online!

Please join our educational course Fundamental Concepts and Methods in Network Neuroscience at OHBM 2020 in Montreal on the 26th of June.

Online program
The education course Fundamental Concepts and Methods in Network Neuroscience will run all day from 08.00 to 16.30. You can find the rest of the program here.

Consortium

VirtualBrainCloud partners

The world-leading experts in clinical research on neurodegenerative diseases and mathematical modelling develop a computational platform for translational research that integrates clinical data from molecular biology and neurology, using nonlinear systems theory as framework. Central to this platform is a multi-scale multi-omics brain model that spans spatiotemporal scale from molecules to organs and from nanoseconds to years.
