This LARC initiative promotes the development of neuroscience in the less active countries of the Latin American Region.
The IBRO-LARC Seeding Neuroscience Program offers an intensive course on the modern and basic principles of neuroscience. During the course activities, students are encouraged to interact with professors to exchange ideas, discuss the subject matter, establish links for the future and help plan their careers.
These factors go beyond the simple transfer of information about how the brain is formed or functions; it also involves basic science in developing therapies for neurological diseases.
The course is intended for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, young researchers, and advanced undergraduate students in biomedical sciences. It is expected to have 50-60 participants per course.
Initially, the priority for these courses will be in countries or regions that have had few opportunities to develop in the area of Neuroscience.
