Tuzla Brain Week is a traditional project implemented by the Student Council of Medical faculty in Tuzla “MEDICUS” for years now and it was created by the idea of students willing to work on the promotion of neuroscience. Project is held within the “Brain Awareness Week” initiative every March for the past seven years, and it is supported by DANA and FENS as the only project of this type in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The nervous system is one of the most complex systems of a human body and closely related to it is a side of mental health. Working on the promotion of neuroscience, prevention of neurological disorders and mental health is a highly important task which students od Medical faculty in Tuzla are achieving every year successfully.
This year, the topic of TBW is “A journey to the center of the brain” and our goal is to encourage your research in the field of neuroscience, such as research in neurology, neurosurgery or psychiatry. We encourage all of you to submit your abstracts with topics from any branch in (bio)medical field, that doesn’t have to be strictly related to neuroscience.
Besides the fact that it is a congress, Tuzla Brain Week has a concept that supports and works on education of all citizens in Tuzla, including every age group. For those who decide to be a part of our project, you get an opportunity to be a part of professional workshops based on hands-on principles which gives you an incredible opportunity to acquire new knowledge from different branches of medicine and it’s related science branches. Besides the chance to be a part of biomedical engineering you will have an opportunity to listen to plenary lectures from experts in the region and worldwide.
