BIG (Brain Imaging Genetics) Radboud Summer School-2018

Nijmegen, 13-17 August 2018

The Cognomics Initiative is happy to announce the third edition of the Radboud Summer School “Brain Imaging Genetics: Genetics for Imagers” in Nijmegen on 13-17 August, 2018.

Our biennial course is directed at neuroimaging researchers who wish to develop their knowledge and skills on state‐of‐the‐art developments in genetics. This intensive one-week program covers various aspects of genetics analyses of neuroimaging data. The lectures will be supplemented with hands‐on computer exercises and demonstrations. We will also show how to genotype single nucleotide polymorphisms and score the genotypes in the molecular lab.

The faculty includes researchers involved in the largest imaging genetics consortium world‐wide – the ENIGMA Consortium – and the Dutch Cognomics Program.

The evenings will be reserved for social activities. The course will be ended with a closing ceremony, where a Radboud Summer School certificate will be handing out to each participant.

Early bird deadline: 1 April 2018 (10% discount)

Application deadline: 1 June 2018

For more information, program, and application: Brain Imaging Genetics 2018.
