The Graduate School Life Sciences and Health (GS LSH) is organizing its 6th scientific day entitled “Exploring the brain” on Friday 2 February 2024 at the NeuroPSI Institute and by video conference.

This meeting will be on-site and remote from 9 am to 6 pm and will begin with the keynote talk of Michela Matteoli (Humanitas University, Milan). During this day, the interdisciplinary object BrainViews will be also presented to the GS LSH community.

The GS LSH invites young researchers to present their research work in a poster.
