Brainstorming Research Assembly for Young Neuroscientists

1st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Italian Young Neuroscientists


BraYn stands for "Brainstorming Research Assembly for Young Neuroscientists", and is an initiative which aims to create a congress specifically intended for young researchers under the age of 40 working in the field of Neuroscience. The idea was conceived at the department of Neuroscience at the University of Genoa, Italy, and the congress will take place in the same city on June 29th-30th 2018. The main goal of the BraYn initiative is to organize a scientific conference attracting different laboratories from across Italy where young researchers, especially PhD students and junior postdocs, can share their knowledge, skills and ideas to establish new collaborations between different research groups.

“We believe that the first BraYn conference will boost the number of connections between laboratories across Italy, thus improving the chance for potential collaborations. At the same time, by hosting and involving neuroscientists from abroad, our goal is to make the BraYn conference a flagship event for young European researchers”.

Company of Biologists

We would like to thank the Biologists' Company for the grant of a contribution of £ 3,000.00 for the realization of the Conference.
