About SBD III

The brain remains the most mysterious entity in the human body, and its functioning continues largely unrevealed. Recent advancements in the way we study the brain have been instrumental in the modern neuroscience. Much of the knowledge built in the last couple of years has arisen from basic studies, which can be promptly translated into clinical studies. Indeed, translational science – bench to bedside – is currently one of the most exciting fields of research. The third edition of Seminars in Brain Disorders is thematic on “Translational Science”. Brazilian and international researchers will discuss the state-of-the-art in the neuroscience field. Join two days in a dynamic, collaborative and interactive environment to discuss brain disorders with leading scientists. The event is free of charge for the academic and general community. Please, do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
