The symposium will be held as an all-online virtual conference this year. Posters and recorded talks (if possible) will be made available to view for six months exclusively to registered attendees.
The conference covers latest developments and breakthroughs in stress resilience research, both in animal models and in human studies. One focus this year will be the question of potential positive effects of adversity, strengths that individuals might develop under stress, inoculation, mastery, self-efficacy. There will be a special session on resilience in the Corona crisis.
The symposium is organized yearly by the Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research (LIR), the International Resilience Alliance (intresa), the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center 1193 "Neurobiology of resilience", and the EU Horizon project DynaMORE. We are part of the Rhine-Main Neuroscience Network (rmn²).
