A Tanenbaum Open Science Institute Initiative
Adopting Open Models of Collaboration in Neuroscience, Rare Diseases, Tropical Diseases, Vaccines and Antivirals
Tuesday, November 23 – Wednesday, November 24
Time: 9:30 am – 2:30 pm EST
The Neuro Open Science in Action Symposium 2021 is the 3rd edition of the international symposium organized by The Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital) and the Tanenbaum Open Science Institute. This virtual two-day symposium provides a unique forum for global leaders in Open Science including researchers, patient advocates, policy-makers, funders, industry, philanthropic organizations, science communicators and other important stakeholders to discuss the latest developments in Open Science.
Openness is essential to the scientific process. One of the greatest promises of Open Science is in accelerating the development of diagnostic tools, treatments, and cures for diseases.
The reasons Open Science can have such a significant impact varies between fields. In some cases greater transparency, collaboration and sharing of scientific knowledge and materials is needed to tackle disease complexity. In others the difficulties arise out of conducting studies with widely dispersed patients. Yet others suffer from the lack of research funding. In many cases a key challenge is the lack of incentives for commercial development.
In this year’s symposium we want to highlight some of the biomedical fields – including neurological diseases, rare diseases, vaccines and antivirals, and tropical diseases – in which Open Science can do the most good. The symposium will feature speakers from diverse perspectives who are using the power of transparency and collaboration to move us closer to a disease-free world.
A preliminary program overview will be available soon. In the meantime, you can register here to receive program updates!
