Agenda 28jun2021 DCMN COGNOMICS workshop
28 June 2021 to 29 June 2021

On 28 & 29 June 2021, the COGNOMICS workshop entitled “Capturing the brain for neuroimaging genomics” will take place online.

Like the past in-person conferences, the workshop will include keynote lectures, as well as smaller-scale breakout sessions in which junior researchers will get the opportunity to present their work in the presence of their peers and research leaders, providing time for discussion of each of the contributions. Leading experts will discuss innovations in characterizing the human brain for imaging genomics research and beyond, with keynote lectures on environmental effects (Lauren Salminen), genome screens of EEG traits (Dirk Smit) and functional MRI (Henrik Walter), and transcriptomics of oscillatory activity (Genevieve Konopka).

Please mark your calendars now!

If you would like to present your work during one of the breakout sessions, please send an email to

More information about registration will become available soon.

What is Cognomics? The Cognomics Initiative includes several excellent research groups from Nijmegen who have joined forces to unravel the complex connections between genes, brain structure and function, and cognitive processes such as memory, language and those relevant for psychiatric disorders. Their conferences aim to foster knowledge exchange and collaboration in the broader field of brain imaging genetics. 

We hope to see / meet  you on screen!

Kind regards, on behalf of the Cognomics board

Dr. Barbara Franke, Dr. Simon Fisher and Dr. Jan Buitelaar
