10.06.2020: Healthcare Research

Our second digital session will take place on 10 June 2020, right after our first general assembly.

Be inspired and join us, with two speakers in healthcare research from the University of Zurich!


Lorena Kegel, psychologist and neuroscientist at UZH, will give a brief introduction to her PhD research and the most interesting results about the processing of avatar faces in the brain. She will highlight potential implications for the use of avatars in clinical and research settings.

Burcu Demiray, geronto-psychologist and research group leader at UZH presents her idea “OldSchool”, a distance learning platform for people over 65 years of age that offers academic courses, hobby and health courses, opportunities to make contacts and access to civic science projects; a project from a recent COVID-19 hackathon.
