The fifth Dutch neurodevelopmental disorders meeting will be held March 24th 2020 with the aim of bringing together fundamental and clinical researchers working in the Netherlands in the field of neurodevelopmental brain disorders.
This one-day meeting aims to present recent results from across the many Institutes and clinics across the country and to stimulate discussion, networking opportunities and potential future collaborations. The meeting will kick-off with a talk from Prof. dr. Gaia Novarino, from Institute of Science and Technology Vienna, Austria. The programme will be featuring junior and senior researchers from across a variety of institutes and clinics across the Netherlands.
Attendance of the meeting is free and open to all but prior registration is required due to limited places. Lunch and refreshments are provided. All talks will be given in English.
