POLISH NEUROSCIENCE

Neuroscience is one of the fastest developing fields of life sciences. Its main goal is to understand bases of functioning of the brain and the remaining components of the nervous system, to grasp processes underlying psychic phenomena and behavior and to explain origin of mental and neurodegenerative diseases.

OUR ACTIVITY

Polish Neuroscience Society brings together neuroscientists, is involved in dissemination of knowledge on the nervous system and progress made in neuroscience, is engaged in popularization of neuroscience, organization of training courses, publication of related materials and represents Polish community of neuroscientists both in Poland and abroad.

POPULARIZATION

The Brain Awareness Week is an annual educational event aimed to disseminate knowledge about the brain and nervous system and its functioning in health and pathology. Its mission is to build awareness in the society on the significance of brain research.

Postdoctoral position open
2018-06-27

The Laboratory of Molecular Basis of Behavior at the Nencki Institute in Warsaw is searching for an outstanding postdoctoral candidate interested in participation in the project entitled "The role of Arc protein in the regulation of alcohol addiction"
The study aims at deciphering the role of Arc/Agr3.1 protein in synaptic dysfunctions that underlie alcohol addiction. Prospective candidates should have a strong interest in the brain research, especially in understanding the brain-mind connection, and PhD degree (or equivalent) in molecular biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, physics/biophysics, biology, psychology, medical or veterinary sciences.

 

The following will be considered in the selection process:

  • A strong publication record, proven proficiency in one or more of the following techniques: electrophysiology, mouse behavior, neuroanatomy, stereotactic surgery, 
  • Exceptional motivation for the scientific research (demonstrated via publications, references of the candidate's thesis tutor),
  • Proficiency in English.

 

Please send applications to Kasia Radwanska (kradwans@nencki.gov.pl) and include: a CV, a letter-of-intent, 2 letters of reference, a copy of PhD diploma (or equivalent) and contact information, including e-mail address and phone number.

2nd Human Brain Project Curriculum Workshop
2018-06-17

From 15 to 17 November, the Education Programme Office of the Human Brain Project will organise its 2nd HBP Curriculum workshop series – Research, Ethics and Societal Impact at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden under the title “Dual Use and Responsible Research. Ethical Challenges”. This workshop aims to provide participants with insights on ethical aspects of dual-use research in neuroscience and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). The topics covered will include the chemistry of the brain and dual action of drugs, novel incapacitants, ethics awareness and engagement and RRI.

Further information about the workshop and the registration form are found HERE.

14th International Symposium “Molecular basis of pathology and therapy in neurological disorders”
2018-05-22

On behalf of the Organizing Committee we would like to invite you to the 14th International Symposium “Molecular basis of pathology and therapy in neurological disorders”. The conference will focus on recent advances in research on molecular mechanisms involved in central nervous system functioning in health and disease, as well as an implementation of novel experimental therapies to the neurological clinic.

Further informartion adn registration are available at: http://ncs2018.imdik.pan.pl/ ,

2nd Neurogenesis Conference, 05 – 08 March 2019
2018-03-15

Sebastian Jessberger (University of Zurich) and Hongjun Song (University of Pennsylvania) are organizing the 2nd Neurogenesis Conference, which will take place from 05 – 08 March 2019 in Nassau, Bahamas. This conference will bring together leaders from diverse fields such as embryonic cortical development, adult neurogenesis, human imaging, and stem cell-based neural disease modelling to discuss recent advances in understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating neural stem cell activity, neuronal specification and functional significance of circuitries modified by the addition of new neurons. In addition, translational perspectives and implications for disease modelling will be covered. Confirmed Keynote Speakers include Jonas Frisén (Karolinska Institute) and Fred Gage (Salk Institute).
