The BraYn Association Ets has established the BraYn Trainee Travel Grant in memory of Placido Illiano.    

Placido was a brilliant young neuroscientist working at the University of Miami. After attending the first two BraYn editions, he embraced the BraYn project and joined our team, thus contributing to the success of BraYn 2020 and 2021. 

We will never forget his wonderful smile, his enthusiasm, and his commitment to science, as well as his help in improving the quality and excellence of the BraYn conference. He will always be remembered by those who knew him as a caring, friendly and hard-working man. With this grant, Placido will be forever engraved in our collective memory.
