BIOMEDAS: Lisa-Marie Bente receives Best Talk Award

During the BIOMEDAS retreat Lisa-Marie Bente has received an award for her talk on “Biomarker Mining for Neurodegenerative and -inflammatory Diseases”. The retreat forms part of the PhD program offered by BIOMEDAS. In her 3 minute flash talk, Lisa-Marie Bente has outlined her research on her two main projects concerning Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and Multiple Sclerosis (MS): Using FDG-PET scans she trains a convolutional neural network which distinguishes between healthy brains and brains with AD. Concerning MS, she compares different types of lesions in the brain of MS patients and examines methylation patterns in the DNA.
