Welcome to NEUROSYSM910, the Neuro-SysMed Junior Scientist Symposia!
This time, Paulo Rodrigues Santos will give us an immunologist view of neuroscience research. Sonia Gavasso will provide us with neuroimmunological insights from high dimensional analysis, Peder Lillebostad will give a talk on SNceg, automated segmentation of the substantia nigra pars compacta from multiparametric MRI, and Karine Eid will give us a summary of findings from her PhD thesis “Childhood abuse, adult abuse, and the risk of perinatal depression in women with multiple sclerosis.” Yola Gerking will explain application of imaging mass cytometry to compare microglia activation in various brain regions in paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration, and Gard Skulstad Johanson will give an ovierview of the N-ADAPT study: a Randomized Double-blind Trial of NAD Replenishment Therapy for Atypical Parkinsonism.

Shamundeeswari Anandan holds academic responsibility for the symposia.
The objective of the symposium series is to provide the PhD candidates with valuable skills into oral presentation techniques of own research, as well as dissemination of others research, provide opportunities to engage in scientific discussions, and to take advantage of peer reviews and comments to strengthen the scientific quality of own research and scientific thinking. A main ambition is also to strengthen the scientific networks and to encourage candidates to establish relations to scientists.
The symposia will be organized 4 times annually, twice every semester. Each symposium will be organized with a keynote lecture initially (45 min), followed by 4 PhD candidates/postdoctoral researchers who present their work (25 min each including the oral presentation and discussion). Subsequently, there will be final discussions. The presentations will be of own research with special attention to presentation techniques and quality.
