MC05: Neuroscience applied and translational research (ECNP)

Organised by the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP)


July 11, 2020 - 8:00 am


July 11, 2020 - 11:30 am

The European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) is committed to ensuring that advances in the understanding of brain function and behaviour are translated into better treatments for brain disorders and enhanced public health.

To achieve these goals, ECNP supports innovative research in neuroscience applied disciplines and facilitate the communication of ideas, discoveries and best practices. In addition, they promote the entry of early career scientists into the field and support their ongoing professional development, provide guidance and information to the public, and facilitate dialogue with regulators, government bodies, international agencies and industry.

In this symposium, four leading experts in neuroscience applied research will outline their research and the field that ECNP is representing and highlight examples how basic neuroscience findings could be translated to clinical application.
