2023 CIBERNED Webinar Series


Next webinar


"Alterations of cortical circuits in Alzheimer´s disease: implications in cognition"

 Speaker: Javier de Felipe, Senior Investigator.

Affiliation: Instituto Cajal (CSIC), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. CIBERNED group: Javier de Felipe, Program 1.

2023 CIBERNED Webinar Series

On 1 January 2023, the Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red en Enfermedades Neurodegenerativas (CIBERNED), was merged by absorption into the Consorcio Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red (CIBER), continuing and giving more scope to the scientific sessions, "CIBERNED Webinar Series". The aim of this tool is to share the latest scientific advances carried out in the CIBERNED thematic area, to make different members of the groups known through their active participation, and to stimulate interactions and collaborations between all CIBER members.

After the success of the last edition, in 2023 we will continue with an open format.are now open to anyone who wishes to attend, in virtual format, in English and, of course, free of charge. The sessions lasts approximately 30 minutes, followed by a question and answer session and discussion for a total time of approximately 45-60 minutes. A few days prior to the webinar, the connection link to the Teams platform is published for anyone who wishes to access it.

The webinars scheduled so far are listed below. Those recorded sessions that have been authorised by the speakers will be published on the CIBERYouTube channel:
