The Brain Prize Meeting 2019 - Denmark

External Event - 25th to 27th Nov 2019

Title: SILENTLY LOSING THE BRAIN – The enigma of small vessel disease

With international keynote speakers including the 2019 prize winners, The Lundbeck Foundation Brain Prize Meeting aims to bring a broad range of researchers to discuss why small vessel disease has emerged as a major contributor to dementia worldwide.

In a mash-up of emerging clinical and experimental research and researchers this meeting will be the perfect stage for discussing how this up-and-coming field will progress from here.

We hope for participants to build an international network and relationships and to exchange knowledge and ideas.


The Lundbeck Foundation in collaboration with Danish Universities and Danish Society for Neuroscience.
