The 6th edition of this summer school is open to graduate and doctoral students specializing in neuroepidemiology, as well as post-doctoral fellows and senior researchers who wish to further their knowledge in this domain.
Course content provides extensive training in cutting-edge research methods with a specific focus on advanced brain imaging and novel “omics” tools, and their application in epidemiology of vascular and brain aging.
The program consists of 4 half-day sessions of distance training, and will propose interactive content. Alternating thematic and methodological interventions from internationally recognized speakers, learning outcomes of this summer school include:
- The latest in modern epidemiology of the most common neurological diseases
- In-depth description of innovative, high-dimensional MRI markers of brain aging in large population-based cohort studies
- Advanced brain imaging and novel “omics” tools, and their application in epidemiology of vascular and brain aging
- Large-scale genomic approaches (GWAS, Exome and Whole genome sequencing approaches), as well as epigenomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics approaches for neurological diseases
- Systems biology and translational approaches
- Single cell RNA sequencing
- Challenges and opportunities of planning new cohort studies and biobanks in the “omics” era
- Hands-on analysis and visualization of omics data and advanced brain imaging
- One-on-one collaboration with experts from around the world
- An editor’s guide for submitting papers on neuroepidemiology with large-scale imaging and omics data for peer reviewed journals
- Ethical considerations
