Neuroimmunology Colloquium

The Neuroimmunologic Colloquium (NIC) serves as our platform to present novel publications on current and controversial research topics as well as to discuss interesting clinical cases at our department. We aim to translate skills and knowledge from latest research into present clinical practice by providing an immediate and complementary approach to both fields at our colloquium sessions. In addition, we aspire to foster the collaboration between interdisciplinary scientists and clinicians and distribute neuroscientific knowledge to students with a special interest in neuroimmunology.

The NIC takes place every Monday during the academic semester months at 13:50 at Charité Campus Mitte, Hufelandweg 6, Ferdinand Sauerbruch Hörsaal 4, 02-068. The specific topics that are going to be presented will be posted in advance on our newsfeed, website and facebook pages. All presentations are held in English. A registration is not required at present. CME certification will be available for certain seminars and lectures.

We would be happy to see you next Monday at our upcoming NIC!
