Summer school: ECNP Immuno-NeuroPsychiatry

July 15th – July 17th, 2021

This interdisciplinary online summer school is open to graduate students, doctoral and post-doctoral researchers from the fields of psychiatry, psychology, biology and medicine. The three-day course focuses on dimensional approaches in psychiatry, preclinical models and methods to measure immune markers. Lectures on hot topics in immunopsychiatry will be given by internationally renowned scientists from the field.

Immune processes are major factors for the health of the central nervous system, as well as for risk or resilience to brain disorders. Exciting scientific insights indicate a highly sensitive and fine-tuned equilibrium of inflammation that modulates our cognitive and social abilities.
