🚨 Special announcement 🚨

Travel bursary opportunities for PhD students or Post-docs

We are pleased to announce that travel bursaries of up to 500€ will be awarded to eight early career researchers (three dedicated to MCWG members) to attend the MCWG annual event in person on 3 and 4 May 2024 in Munich.

Please register and apply before March 31: tinyurl.com/MCWGMunich2024. Places are limited!

As a reminder, this hybrid event is free (but registration is compulsory!) and is divided in 2 parts:

  • Open-access symposium entitled “What is brain connectivity?” will aim to identify common denominators in determining macroscale brain connectivity across fMRI, DWI, EEG, and molecular connectivity (📅 May 3, 🕒 9:00 am – 1:00 pm).
  • Exclusive sessions reserved to MCWG members and experts dedicated to “Molecular Imaging of Brain Connectivity: towards standardized nomenclature“ (📅 May 3-4).

Do not miss your chance, awardees will have the opportunity to attend the whole event, exclusive sessions included!

Bursaries are reserved to early career researchers pursuing doctoral degree or having a doctoral degree obtained after May 2019, we encourage all eligible persons to apply, the deadline is March 31, 2024, 23:59 CEST. Winners will be announced at the beginning of April.

Who we are

The MCWG is made up of four international and multidisciplinary councils dedicated to promoting molecular connectivity research via dissemination of methods, results, collaboration, and resource sharing (e.g. datasets, tools) within the scientific community. We encourage the neuroscientific community to take an integrative perspective in study of the brain connectome, where various methods including MRI-based techniques, electrophysiological tools, and molecular imaging advance our understanding of the brain. Please find fundamental questions outlined here: “Brain connectomics: time for a molecular imaging perspective?”

Our website can be found here. We also invite you to join the MCWG!
