From 3-7 July 2023, speakers and participants from 19 different countries and 5 different continents came together in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, for a summer school entitled “Stress & Cognition: From Basic Mechanisms to Psychopathology”. The five-day summer school was hosted by Radboud University and Radboud University Medical Center and co-organized by the DynaMORE consortium. It covered topics ranging from basic stress physiology to the effects of stress on memory, consequences of early-life stress exposure, and stress resilience, and featured a prominent line-up of speakers.
Kölle Alaaf – The 6th DynaMORE General Assembly (GA) Meeting in scenic Cologne, Germany, from 29-31 March 2023 was a great success, with nearly 30 delegates discussing scientific progress and reaching important decisions. We also welcomed a few new faces to the team, including a new project manager. Many thanks to Dr. Sara Stöber for five years of spot-on management and welcome, Sonja Leissner (also from concentris), who will lead the project to the finish line together with our scientific coordinator, Prof. Raffael Kalisch (LIR).
The latest Steering Committee meeting was very successfully completed on 4th October 2022 via Zoom. The meeting was once again filled with fruitful discussions as well as updates on all Work Packages. We look forward to meeting in person again during the General Assembly meeting taking place in spring next year (location to be decided).
The first face-to-face meeting after 2 years of the pandemic, took part from 6-8 April 2022 in Palma de Mallorca. It was a full success: Besides lots of fruitful discussions and catching up on the enormous progress made in all work packages, we mainly enjoyed and scientifically benefited from finally meeting in person again! What a beautiful location.
