Hotsite of the Neuroinfections and Neuroimmunology Research Club
During the webinar, the Neuroinfections and Neuroimmunology Research Club hotsite (only in Portuguese) was launched, a place where researchers and students could share and develop research based on the connection between basic research and innovations in health, focusing on the themes of idiopathic neuroimmunological diseases (of unknown cause) and post-infectious and para-infectious neurological manifestations of viral pathogens.
The inaugural class of the research group took place on October 19th with the participation of the professor from the University of Brasília, Ricardo Titze de Almeida. (recording available soon).
