Windows Into the Brain


Join us for a Duke School of Medicine-supported Interdisciplinary Colloquia Initiative. 2 sessions:

December 8, 2016 and April 6, 2017

Let's come think together inside the DIBS glass box for the day, and hope to resurface with new ideas! 1st session coming up December 8th.

Brain research spans scientific domains, and imaging is a translational tool that can help across multiple levels, such as:

  • Developing targeted imaging probes

  • Developing imaging methods

  • Using sophisticated algorithms for univariate / multivariate analysis

  • Ultimately, interpreting those findings in the context of behavioral and physiological changes in the brain

2 sessions on translational brain imaging for neurodegenerative brain diseases can help identify synergies based on areas of interest, needs, and expertise of individual researchers.

Participants are invited to present posters. Contact us for more information.


1st session December 8, 2016 and 2nd session April 6, 2017


Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (DIBS) Multipurpose Room B035, Levine Science Research Center (LSRC)

DIBS    Enter through the glass cube on the patio of the LSRC


Register here for 1 or both sessions, and let us know if you plan to present a poster.
