Berlin Neuroscience Meeting 2017

The Berlin Neuroscience Meeting took place on Friday, October 13, 2017 in the CCO. At the event, the Einstein Center for Neurosciences (ECN) celebrated its first “birthday” together with its partner institutions. In addition to networking and exchanging scientific ideas, the meeting provided an opportunity to welcome the first Einstein PhD cohort and introduce the new PhD students to the Berlin neuroscience scene.


NCRC-BrainLab "Breakout-Session"

On Friday, May 12, 2017, clinical researchers and basic scientists from the Cluster visited the new neurosurgery operating rooms, the neurointensive care unit, and the emergency room in the recently renovated Charité highrise hospital building. The unique Stroke Emergency Mobile (STEMO), equipped with computed tomography (CT) and a small laboratory, was also on display. In the future, this state-of-the-art technology will be increasingly used in an interdisciplinary research approach to investigate mechanisms, acute and hyperacute diseases, and to develop new treatment options.

Regular seminar series

Neuroscience Colloquium
The Neuroscience Colloquium is a weekly seminar series during the summer and winter terms (Thursdays 17:00-18:00) at which internationally renowned scientists present their current research. The event is followed by an informal get-together where attendees can continue to talk about science over pizza and beer.
CCO Networking Seminar

The CCO Networking Seminar is a series of events offering all CCO scientists and researchers the opportunity to share current projects and exchange ideas and expertise. Through a variety of talks ranging from PIs introducing their labs to methodological sessions, we’re coming together to promote more interaction and cooperation within CCO (and without). This is a chance to try out new ideas, present current projects, discuss the latest research results, and discover new methods and technical developments. The seminars usually take place every Wednesday from 12:15 to 13:15 in the CCO Auditorium, or on Tuesdays at the Paul Ehrlich Hörsaal. Snacks and drinks are provided.

Career Development Seminar
The Career Development Seminar is a newly formed seminar series aimed at providing students and postdocs with insights into different career options and promoting interdisciplinary networking. Once a month, speakers discuss their professional career paths in and outside academia in fields such as R&D, consulting, publishing, management, marketing, entrepreneurship, and more.
Neuroimmunological Colloquium
The Neuroimmunological Colloquium offers scientists, physicians, and students a framework for exchanging ideas on topics related to neuroimmunology. The colloquium takes place Mondays 14:00-15:00.
NCRC Seminar
The NCRC organizes an interdisciplinary seminar to promote exchange between basic scientists and clinicians. The NCRC Seminar serves as a discussion forum for scientists and physicians about ongoing research projects and promising results from basic research. The next NCRC seminar will meet on November 15, 2019.
