We are delighted to welcome everyone interested in our research to two outstanding talks to be given by world-class neuroscience experts. Milan Brazdil, MD PhD, from St. Anne’s University Hospital in Brno, Czech Republic, and Prof. Gregory Worrell MD PhD, from Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN, USA, are visiting professors in our BME lab of the BioTechMed Center, funded from the Aurum grant – Supporting International Research Team Building, as part of the Research University program (IDUB) at the Gdansk Tech. Their professorships will be inaugurated with excellent talks about how our brains make errors, including the deja vu experience (prof. Brazdil), and about the future of brain stimulation technologies that use Artificial Intelligence in the next generation of brain-computer interfaces to treat seizures, mood and cognition (Prof. Worrell).
Everyone is invited to attend these free lectures followed by a grand discussion about the brain and how to treat its disorders. Both talks will take place on Thursday, July 29th in the Sankiewicz lecture hall (Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunication and Informatics – WETI), starting at 1:00pm – for more details see the flyer in the photograph. The talk and the discussion will also be streamed live on the youtube channel of Gdansk Tech:
The lectures are hosted by the new BioTechMed Center at the Gdansk Tech with the purpose of attracting world-class scientists and research collaborations in the fields of biotechnology, biomedical engineering and biomedical sciences. The two professorships will follow two international fellowships of dr Brent Berry (Mayo Clinic, USA) and dr Jan Cimbalnik (St. Anne’s University Hospital in Brno, Czech Republic), who have already joined our BME lab for postdoctoral fellowships.
