For Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation and Brain Imaging.
The BrainBox Initiative Conference is specifically designed to give early career neuroscientists a voice by providing valuable opportunities to present and be recognised for their research, network and exchange ideas with their peers and discover opportunities to collaborate.
The programme has been created in collaboration with key academics in the field, Professors John Rothwell, Sven Bestmann and Dr Joe Devlin of University College London, Professor Michael Banissy, Goldsmiths, University of London, Dr Charlotte Stagg and Dr Jacinta O’Shea, University of Oxford and Professor Paul Taylor, LMU Munich.
The programme includes:
- Keynote – Professor Zoe Kourtzi, University of Cambridge
- Keynote – Professor Yoshikazu Ugawa, Fukushima Medical University
- Dr Camilla Nord, University of Cambridge
- Professor Paul Taylor, LMU Munich
- ‘Preparing to Stimulate – Ethics and Research Design’ with Professor Kate Watkins and Dr Joseph Devlin
- An update from 2017 Research Challenge winners, Naheem Bashir and Tegan Penton
- Poster pitches and session
- Presentation of the BrainBox Initiative Research Challenge 2018
- Presentation of the Young Investigator Award 2018
- Networking opportunities
- Plus much more!
This comprehensive prize will enable an early career researcher to complete a proof of principal or pilot study, boost their CV, learn new skills and make new valuable networking connections.
DEADLINE: 30 JUN 2018
Researchers are invited to submit abstracts for inclusion on the conference poster session. We are looking for research studies that include non-invasive brain imaging and stimulation.
Please note, this year we will only be accepting 30 posters who will be offered the opportunity to present a short Poster Pitch during the conference.
Please submit soon to avoid disappointment.
DEADLINE: 30 JUL 2018
Young Investigator Award
The BrainBox Initiative Young Investigator Award seeks to stimulate and reward novel neuroscience research. Current graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are invited to submit descriptions of ongoing research and published papers.
