The course is intended for trainees in general pathology, neuropathology, neurology or neurosurgery but also for neurobiologists and PhD students in neurological sciences.  Specifically, for those who, in the course of their PhD research, will be involved with the neuropathology of, for example, neurodegenerative diseases, developmental diseases, brain tumours or white matter diseases.

The virtual program consists of 6 sessions:

  • General neuropathology
  • Developmental neuropathology & epilepsy
  • Infectious & inflammatory diseases of the nervous system
  • Neurodegeneration & prion diseases
  • Muscle pathology & metabolic diseases

In these sessions experts in the various fields will give overviews of the latest insights.
