We are proud to announce that our first keynote speaker will be professor Ron de Kloet.

Ron de Kloet is known for his research on stress hormones, specifically cortisol. He discovered that cortisol influences the brain's resilience to stress through its effect on the balance between activation and suppression of stress reactions.

Last thursday we announced the new theme and logo of the 2019 Mind the Brain symposium. We want to thank everyone that came to the Theme Reveal Party to support us. 


When thinking about a theme, we wanted something timeless and yet trending in science. We have found one that is highly relevant in science and in society today: The Stressed Brain -  A Nervous System.


We are currently working very hard on the keynote speakers and workshops. We are looking forward to the symposium on the 13th and 14th of june.
