Open: 17 April – 17 May 2023 |

The goal of this school is to equip students with practical skills regarding techniques and neuroscience methods for different types of research. After completing this school, participants should understand the fundamentals of neuroscience and be able to practice basic techniques including immunohistochemistry and behavioral testing. They should be more motivated to conduct research in neuroscience by ensuring a high neuroethical standard.

About the school:

This 6-day associate school on behavioral and translational neuroscience is designed to share knowledge and teach techniques for conducting research in behavioral or translational neuroscience. The school is jointly organized by IBRO-APRC, MNS, MNUMS, BMRIMAS, and NCMH. During the school, participants will be provided with theoretical knowledge and be taught basic behavioral and translational neuroscience techniques, ranging from basic science research to public health applications of neuroscientific methods. Developing animal models for behavioral disorders, testing/screening on behavioral symptoms using neuroscientific methods, and applying public health research on behavioral disorders will be also introduced. In group discussions, students will be provided with neuroethical issues and encouraged to prepare for a presentation at a journal club by using a computer to search for relevant articles on a given topic. Starting on day 5, students will join the lectures and symposia at the 10th Annual Meeting of the Mongolian Neuroscience Society. To strengthen friendships, the local organizers will also arrange a half-day social activity after the official program.

Who should apply to this school?

Students should be postdocs, PhDs, MDs, MScs, and BScs from all institutions in the APRC region.

What costs will be covered for selected participants?
