    The Brain Mosaic: Cellular heterogeneity in the CNS (2nd edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/the-brain-mosaic-cellular-heterogeneity-in-the-cns-2nd-edition Recent advances in technology now allow us to explore multiple aspects of heterogeneity at the single cell level. Nowhere is this more important than in the Central Nervous System (CNS), where cellular heterogeneity has profound effects on all aspects of normal brain function and behavior and explains important aspects of disease pathology. With the second edition of the Brain Mosaic conference we aim to bring together leaders in this emerging discipline to discuss how it is advancing our knowledge of CNS function and disease. Speakers at this neuroscience meeting on ‘single cell’ will emphasize the multi-disciplinary nature of the field in several sessions: • Single cell sequencing and cell diversity • Spatial transcriptomics • New developments in technology and bioinformatics • CNS sequencing and relevance to disease research • Connections an activity Poster information: Format: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation Deadlines: • Early Bird: 8 September 2019 • Late Registration: 26 September 2019 • Abstract deadline: 29 August 2019 2019-10-10 08:00:00 UTC 2019-10-11 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat, Leuven, Belgium KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat Leuven Vlaams-Brabant Belgium 3000 Bioinformatics Transcriptomics Sequencing [] Evy Vierstraete +32 9 244 66 11 conferences@vib.be [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] Single cell sequencing Sequencingcell diversitySpatial transcriptomicsTranscriptomicstranscriptomicsAlzheimers Clinical Trials And StudiesAlzheimers DiseaseAmnesiaAnimal Models In DementiaAnxiety Autoimmune Disorders & Multiple SclerosisBehavioral IssuesBiopsychiatry Blood-Brain BarrierBrain DiagnosisBrain Disease & FailureBrain InjuryBrain TumourCentral Nervous SystemCerebrovascular DiseaseChild NeurologyClinical NeurophysiologyCNS TumorsCognitive DisordersDementiaDementia CareDemyelinationDiagnosis And TherapyEpilepsyGenetics Genetics And Epigenetics Geriatric NeurologyGut- Brain AxisHeadacheIntervention NeuroradiologyMeningitisMental HealthMental Health NursingMetastatisMovement DisordersMultiple SclerosisMultiple Sclerosis DiagnosisNervous SystemNeural EngineeringNeural EnhancementNeuro-Oncology NeuroanaatomyNeuroanatomyNeurocritical CareNeurodegenerationNeurodegenerative DisorderNeurodegenerative DisordersNeurogeneticsNeuroimagingNeuroimmunologyNeurological DisordersNeurological Disorders And StrokeNeurological InfectionsNeurological SurgeryNeurologistNeurologyNeuromedicinesNeuromuscular MedicineNeuronal AutoantibodiesNeuropathyNeuropeptidesNeuropharmacologyNeuroscienceNeurosurgeryNeurotoxicologyNeurotoxinsNeurotransmissionNeurotransmittersParkinsonParkinsons DiseasePediatric NeurologyPharmacology Psychiatry Psychology PsychoneuroimmunologyRecent Research And Case StudiesRehabilitation TherapyStem Cell Treatment For Neurological DisordersStrokesTraumatic Brain InjuryCNS sequencing disease researchbioinformatics• New developments in technology

Perfect introduction to genetic counseling. This has given me a very real insight into the work that is carried out prior to my role in a genetic testing laboratory. Also overwhelming to think of the hours that go into the counselling sessions, ensuring patients are prepared, informed and able to make their own decisions." - Previous Participant_ _"Thank you very much for such an informative, enjoyable and though-provoking course. I have learnt a lot during these six weeks and I definitely know more now than I did prior to starting! I am glad to say that this has increased my interest in Genetic counselling as a profession and am very likely going to pursue it as a career." - Previous Participant_ _"Thank you Anna and Jonathan for a very interesting course, I have enjoyed the role play as it allowed me to be in the GC and clients shoes, and discussing my thoughts/comments with my fellow learners, and learning about the difference in other countries that was shared. Kept me gripped learning something new." _- _Previous Participant_ _"It has been a great and interesting time in the last six weeks. Understanding the personal feelings/ views of patients (autonomy, empathy, patience, etc), professional ways of communication in GC, ethics of GC, with the professional know how of the Genetic Counsellors; the different contexts of Genetic Services in different countries,and also sharing the view of my co-learners, has been a great experience._ _These will greatly assist in the discharge of my duties to the the patients as I come across them whether at my duty post or elsewhere."_ - Previous Participant # Programme ### What topics will you cover? * Why people would see a genetic counsellor * Some of a genetic counsellor’s key tasks * A genetic counsellor’s key skills and knowledge: counselling skills, medical and scientific knowledge * Ethical issues in genetic counselling * What the future might hold for genetic counsellors ### What will you achieve?
