We are very happy to announce that Prof. Dr. Albena Jordanova is Keynote Speaker at the NeuroDoWo 2022 in Cologne. Prof. Jordanova works at the Vlaams Institute voor Biotechnologie in Antwerp, Belgium on heritable neurodegenerative diseases. Using bioinformatics methods, she was able to identify a mutation that causes Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease in 2012. She is now working on the identification of the functions of that gene using model organisms.
The NeuroDoWo has been organized by doctoral candidates for over 30 years under the patronage of the German Neuroscience Society. Our aim is to reach early career scientists from an as broad and diverse (neuro-) scientific background as possible, from Germany and abroad. The conference promotes communication across disciplines and to allow young scientists to gain experience in presenting and discussing their research in a talk or with a scientific poster. This year's NeuroDoWo will be held in Cologne, June 29th - July 1st 2022.
