Nothing more fascinating than the human brain. Structural, biochemical or electrical abnormalities in the brain can result in a range of symptoms, resulting in various health problems. What are current developments, and where will research reveal a tip of the veil next?

Translational medical research indicates an exchange of knowledge between medical doctors in the hospital and experimental researchers in the lab. With this symposium, we give the floor to a patient, a clinician, a lab researcher, and a geneticist to explain what is needed for optimal translational research.
