Report The support by RURS Plus allowed me to participate at the FENS Forum in Milan, the biggest European conference for neuroscience. Here, I performed a poster presentation about structural and functional alterations in a rat model of first-episode psychosis. These results are part of my MD-project. Through the discussions with neuroscientist from all over the world, I was able to conduct new ideas for further research strategies and gain further assurance in presenting and discussing my results. Furthermore, numerous symposia and lectures informed about the state of the art in several research fields related not only to my MD-project, but also in clinical research. All in all, participating at the FENS Forum was a great success for my MD-Project, for my further medical career, and for me personally.
