The IBRO Latin America Regional Committee (IBRO-LARC) and the IBRO US/Canada Regional Committee (IBRO-USCRC) partner with the Society for Neuroscience and the Grass Foundation to support the Latin American Training Program (LATP). This five-year initiative launched its first course in 2014, and builds on the historic strengths of the SfN Ricardo Miledi Program, a Grass Foundation funded training initiative that ran from 2003-12. The LATP is projected to serve approximately 650 trainees from Latin America and the Caribbean by the end of the five-year term. Fifteen outstanding students are selected each year to participate in an onsite, advanced 3-week training program. Additionally, more than 100 students from across the region participate in an online training program, which includes webinars, videos, networking, and discussions on professional development and the latest science.
