I am proud to invite you to the 16th successive Croatian Student Summit under the banner of “Neuroscience”. The Croatian Student Summit also popularly known as CROSS is a congress organized by the Student Council of the University of Zagreb, School of Medicine that has been continuously organized for 16 years in a row. I would like to highlight that CROSS is organized almost entirely by students, therefore representing the extraordinary values of both the Faculty and the University. Students at the Summit can participate as either passive or active participants; we also have the option to engage in CROSS in the form of an elective course, which speaks for the value of this event within our faculty.
Mental and neurological diseases in developed countries are massive health concerns. We expect an increase in living standard will influence an increase in those diseases, in both developed and developing countries alike. Neuroscience today is one of the fastest-growing branches of medicine. With this congress, we would like to bring the word of neuroscience a bit closer to all interested students and young physicians.
This congress presents a great opportunity to exchange ideas, understandings and accomplishments which can complement and advance your knowledge and open new perspectives. Through lectures from the biggest experts, interesting and instructive workshops and qualitative scientific works, we want to present to you the massive opportunities in neuroscience for the future. Therefore, we are inviting you to join us at the Croatian Student Summit 16 being held from the 22nd to 25th of April 2020 at the School of Medicine, University of Zagreb.
Anton Malbašić, President of CROSS 16 Organising Committee
