Aston Researcher Jacky Po at SigmaPhi 2023

I had an amazing time at SigmaPhi 2023 in Crete! As part of the NEU-CHiP consortium, I presented our work on “Inferring Effective Structure from Cortical Neural Network Activities” at this prominent conference in statistical physics. Such a fantastic platform for knowledge exchange and networking! #SigmaPhi2023 #NEUCHiP #NeuralNetworks #ConferenceExperience

First Consortium Meeting

After many months of planning and fine tuning the proposal, bringing together an interdisciplinary team of experts across the EU, and now many months of online meetings to drive our research, we are all looking forward to being part of the first physical meeting of the consortium.

This will be hosted in the Faculty of Medicine in the University of Barcelona June 6-7th 2022.

Dan Merryweather talks at FIRM2022

Dr Daniel Merryweather from the Loughborough partners of NEUCHiP gave a talk about his work related to the development and fabrication of in vitro neural models at the Future Investigators of Regenerative Medicine (FIRM) conference #FIRM2022.

The conference was held in the delightful setting of Middleton Lodge, North Yorkshire in the UK, with an great interdisciplinary audience attracted from around the world.

In response to a great talk followed by lots of questions about his work, Dan was invited to join the FIRM committee to help advise on the growth of this community and setting up next years annual event.

Tornero’s Lab shows off some fluorescence

Although green might be the colour of choice today with many celebrating St Patrick’s day in the UK and Ireland, the Tornero’s lab in Barcelona are showing off their imaging of neuronal cultures in a rather striking shade of red.

Dementia Researcher NIHR Podcast

Drs Eric Hill (Aston) and Paul Roach (Loughborough) were invited for interview with Dr Sam Moxon (Manchester) to talk about NEU-CHiP and their general interest in brain research.
