Integrating research, technology transfer and dissemination: NeuroMat’s third report of activities

When the São Paulo Research Foundation established the structure of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers it stated clearly that the most important feature of RIDCs was the multiplicity of their missions, a cornerstone for attaining the status of “a world class research center.” Each RIDC must have a specific, high-impact research focus, and this research focus must be necessarily integrated with technology-transfer and scientific dissemination explicit missions. FAPESP's RIDC for Neuromathematics (NeuroMat), that was established in 2013 and is coordinated by mathematician Antonio Galves, reports its third year of activities by emphasizing how the major scientific challenge of building a conceptual framework for neuroscience data informs technology transfer and scientific dissemination.

NeuroMat Parkinson Network: a video presentation

Aiming at improving the life quality of people with Parkinson's Disease, the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (RIDC NeuroMat) has created the network Amparo. It brings together people with the disease, relatives, helpers, students and professionals to establish a flow of exchange to better the understanding of this disease in Brazil and especially connecting knowledge from the frontier of science to health policies and clinical guidelines.

On NeuroMat

NeuroMat is a research center established in 2013 at the University of São Paulo that is dedicated to integrating mathematical modeling and theoretical neuroscience. Among the core missions of NeuroMat are the creation of a new mathematical system to understanding neural data and the development of neuroscientific open-source computational tools. The research center is headed by Prof. Antonio Galves, from USP's Institute of Mathematics and Statistics, and is funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).
