- For the second time in September 2020, the NeuroMiner Machine Learning School was conducted by the ECNP Neuroimaging Network, the Section for Neurodiagnostic Applications, and the Mx Planck Fellow Group for Precision Psychiatry. A total of 124 participants were registered in the 4 day course and 50 participants attended specific tutorials conducted by 5 instructors. It was a successful event with excellent feedback from the participants

- Our team leader Prof. Dr. med. Nikolaos Koutsouleris was awarded the DGPPN Research Prize 2017 for predictive, preventive and personalized medicine in psychiatry and neurology.
