Open: 24 April – 31 May 2023 |
The ISN-IBRO Latin American School “Molecular and Cellular Mechanisms of Sensory Transduction” will be a seven day theoretical and practical course held at the Instituto de Fisiología Celular (IFC) in the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) in Mexico City. The School will focus on recent advances in sensory transduction, particularly in the somatosensory, vestibulocochlear, and visceral systems.
About the school:
The objectives of the School will be:
1) Study the molecular and cellular entities that detect physical and chemical stimuli in the sensory organs, as well as an understanding of basic concepts involved in sensory transduction phenomena. The course will include the somatosensory, vestibulocochlear, and visceral systems.
2) Understand the functional role of ion channels, receptors, G proteins, and second messengers in sensory physiology.
3) Bring together students from underprivileged regions (from Mexico and Latin America) with leading neuroscience researchers.
Who should apply to this school?
The School will receive 20 students (MSc and early Ph.D.); 14 from different regions of Mexico, and 5 or 6 from Latin American countries.
Student applications from regions with lower academic opportunities will be strongly considered.
Outstanding undergraduate students would be considered.
All school co-organizers are committed to gender equity; thus, we will try to provide a balanced selection of students.
What costs will be covered for selected participants?
Through generous support from ISN and IBRO, the School offers financial aid for 20 participants (travel, accommodation, etc).
