IBRO-USCRC 12th Canadian School of Neuroscience: Neural Circuits and Plasticity in Health and Disease
April 29, 2018 - May 16, 2018
This Canadian IBRO School of Neuroscience offers an advanced neuroscience course for young investigators from Africa and Latin America. The school focuses on the development and plasticity of neural circuits, and on mechanisms of repairing circuits that are damaged or that develop abnormally. This opportunity is made possible by the support of the IBRO North American Regional Committee and several Canadian institutions. The School is intended for 12-14 promising young trainees from Africa and Latin America who have clear leadership potential in the scientific community of their home countries. Laboratory research experience of applicants is essential. Unique features of the School are hands-on experience in the laboratory of their choice and attendance and presentation of a poster of their work at the Canadian Association for Neuroscience’s annual meeting, a meeting that brings together over 1000 researchers, mostly from across Canada and the United States.
