   Theme of the School 2013: "Synases and neural circuits"
     The course is intended for mid-term PhD students and young postdocs. A total of 20- 24 students will be accepted. The programme will cover lectures and discussions with renowned scientists as well as methodological training, organized as short practical projects. For each of these mini-projects, a team of 2 students will work under the direction of the local faculty. Each week will be ‘themed’ to focus on one particular technique as follows:
1) Molecular and cellular biology, morphology
2) Electrophysiology and live imaging
3) Integrated and behavioural approaches
     The N€uromed consortium offers fellowships to PhD students and Post-doc from Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Turkey to attend the European Synapse Summer School that will take place between the 4th to 23d September 2011 in Bordeaux, France. If you are interested in applying, please note you first need to submit your application on ...
