Science webinar: The Brain Atlas



On November 20, Science magazine organised a one hour webinar titled "The Brain Atlas: A road map through the complex protein signature of the brain" with Mathias Uhlen and Evelina Sjöstedt.

Approximately one billion people in the world suffer from neurological disorders, defined as progressive loss of neurological functions, including dementia, stroke, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, migraines, brain injuries, cancer, and neuroinfections. The neurodegenerative disorders include Alzheimer's disease; the tremor-associated Parkinson's disease, caused by death of dopaminergic neurons; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, involving neuronal death and loss of motor function; the inherited disorder Huntington's disease; and multiple sclerosis, an immune-mediated disorder affecting myelination of neuronal axons.

During the webinar you hear the speakers:

  • Introduce the Brain Atlas and how its data was generated
  • Discuss the process for identification and characterization of both brain- and regional-specific proteins and how they overlap
  • Explain the two different strategies for profiling proteins in the human and mouse brain
  • Answer viewer questions live during the broadcast.
