CINPLA faculty awarded huge grant for a new consortium: DigiBrain

The Norwegian Research Council launched a new strategic initiative entitled “Digital Life – Convergence for Innovation” this year, and Marianne Fyhn is leading the consortium: DigiBrain: From genes to brain function in health and disease.

The primary objective of DigiBrain is to establish a pipeline for linking genetic information to systems-level measures of brain behaviour by means of multiscale computational modeling and targeted experimental animal studies at the levels of neuron, neural networks and systems. Further, DigiBrain will in collaboration with pharmaceutical and medical technology companies, prominent international research environments, explore new and innovative ways for drugs discovery by use of the multiscale computational model.
