Lectures from world-renowned neuroscientists are now available upon request
Scientists from around the world have connected online with world-class speakers and leading manufacturers to explore the latest tools, technologies and research in neuroscience.
Following the success of the first Neuroscience Summit last year, the Virtual Summit of Neuroscience 2021 presented hot topics such as Alzheimer’s disease, neurodegeneration, spatial and cellular genomics, single-cell characterization, etc.
SelectScience Virtual Summits offer scientists the opportunity to bring together thousands of scientists from around the world to explore major developments in the field. The platform featured renowned speakers, interactive booths, major brand resource centers and networking opportunities. Additionally, this year scientists were invited to participate in the event by submitting a poster or summary of their latest research in neuroscience, which will be displayed in the new poster room.
Summit speaker Prof Jonathan Sweedler, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, explained why events like this are so important: “While getting to meetings is more of a problem this year due to pandemic, attending meetings has always been an effective way to learn about the latest developments; The Virtual Neuroscience Summit is well suited to our virtual world and is a great way to stay up to date. “
A total of seven compelling presentations each drew large crowds of live attendees, as did the new display room.
Some of the conferences now available for watch on demand understand:
- Keynote: How enlightenment changes your brain – Dr Andrew Newberg, Thomas Jefferson University
- Mapping the architecture of human tissues using spatial genomics – Dr Omer Bayraktar, Wellcome Sanger Institute
- Why do neurons have primary cilia? – Prof. Jannon Fuchs, University of North Texas
- The single-celled chemical characterization of the brain – Teacher. Jonathan Sweedler, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
- Detection of Alzheimer’s biomarkers using graphene sensors – Dr Shakil Awan, University of Plymouth
A number of leading manufacturers also showcased their latest technologies available in the field, including ACD, Abcam, NanoTemper and CoolLED technologies. All presentations and resources are now available on request.
The Virtual Summit also featured live question-and-answer sessions and a SelectScience exam booth, which enabled two-way communication between visitors, speakers and manufacturers. The Scientists’ Channel booth also proved popular, featuring video interviews with leading scientists from around the world.
Feedback from participants was excellent. Nazanin Mohammad Rezaii, Amirkabir University of Technology, said, “I wanted to thank you for the perfect layouts and the perfect webpage design. It is by far one of the biggest virtual events I have ever attended.
Participants were able to collect a virtual loot bag of useful resources for free. These are also available on demand in the village hall.
