Human Brain Project in collaboration with BioExcel are organizing the HBP Annual Meeting.

Innovative neuromedicine approaches require a detailed understanding of the molecular and systems-level organisation of the human brain, the causes and mechanisms of diseases, their progression, and the response to treatments. Because of the high level of complexity of the nervous system and the inter-subject variability in molecular brain organisation, behaviour and disease, addressing these issues for any neuropathology appears a daunting task. Indeed, for most neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, there is currently no cure in spite of the very large investments from academia and industries. The discovery of new drugs against brain diseases is thus viewed as an ethical priority for ongoing neuroscience research.The aim of CDP6 is to develop new strategies for more effective drug treatments of brain diseases using computational models.
