The Monday Night Social


Since OHBM 2010 in Barcelona, the Monday Night Social has gathered the OHBM community for a fun and light hearted social over food and drinks to bring out the human nature of this scientific community.

Primarily focused on bringing the young scientist together, and making them feel at home within the OHBM family, the Monday Night Social & Open Science Gala has grown to a full size event hosting more than 1,000 attendees for the night.

The attendees include students fresh in the field, postdocs, young investigators, as well as established PIs.

The MONDAY NIGHT SOCIAL & Open science gala WILL bring everybody together for a night where statute is no longer a barrier.


No conference would be memorable without a proper party! This year, immerse yourself in the retro atmospheres of “La Dolce Vita”, and join us in the sophisticated setting of VyTA Villa Borghese. Experience with your own eyes the legendary beauty of the gardens of Rome, and brace yourself for a night of unforgettable fun, with free food and drinks, music, and en plein air entertainment!


The event is intended to create a relaxed atmosphere and encourage networking, bringing everyone together for a night where statute is no longer a barrier. During the night we will also announce the winners of the annual NeuroBureau BrainArt competition!

Save the date!
