Professor Klaas Stephan - October 5, 2021
"Translational Neuromodeling, Computational Psychiatry, and Computational Psychomatics"
William K. Warren, Jr. Frontiers in Neuroscience Lecture
VIRTUAL PRESENTATION (see below for Zoom link info)
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Klaas Enno Stephan is a computational neuroscientist and medical doctor. He is Full Professor for Translational Neuromodeling & Computation Psychiatry at the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich.
His scientific work spans the entire translational pipeline, from the development of disease theories via the creation of computational methods to their application in clinical studies. A central goal is the development of clinically useful “computational assays” for psychiatry and psychosomatics, with a current focus on brain-body interactions in fatigue and depression. In 2012, Klaas founded the Translational Neuromodeling Unit (TNU) at Zurich, an interdisciplinary institution with the mission to translate advances in computational neuroscience into diagnostic and prognostic tools for clinical practice.
Klaas’ track record includes several disease theories (schizophrenia, fatigue, depression), the development of open source and widely used computational tools for investigating human brain connectivity, as well as numerous studies on psychiatric conditions and disease mechanisms. His work has been recognized by various awards and honours, including the Wiley Young Investigator Award for Human Brain Mapping and election to the Max Planck Society.
