The “Systems Neuroscience: bridging the scales of the brain” conference will bring together world-wide leading experts in neuroscience in an interdisciplinary framework to address the complexity of the human brain and to demonstrate how systematic approaches can be used to reveal disease mechanisms.
The emphasis of the conference will be on the integration of the different biological scales. The conference will cover cutting-edge approaches from genetics, electrophysiology, single cell biology, omics technologies, neuroimaging and corresponding data analysis and modelling approaches
Maison du Savoir is the central building of the University of Luxembourg and the City of Science. Located on the campus Belval, it houses the central administration, amphitheatres and general educational infrastructure of the University of Luxembourg as well as rooms that can be used for public or private seminars. Campus Belval is a new campus built in unique architecture combination of old steel industry buildings and new science buildings.

About the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine
The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) of the University of Luxembourg is accelerating biomedical research by closing the link between systems biology and medical research. Collaboration between biologists, medical doctors, computer scientists, physicists, engineers and mathematicians is offering new insights in complex systems like cells, organs, and organisms. These insights are essential for understanding principal mechanisms of disease pathogenesis and for developing new tools in diagnostics and therapy.
The LCSB combines experimental and computational approaches to analyse complex biological systems and disease processes with a strong focus on neuropathology including neurodegeneration and epilepsy. The overarching strategy of the interdisciplinary research centre is to combine systematically experimental and theoretical approaches to develop mechanistic disease models.
