ISN Advanced Schools

The ISN Advanced Schools offer a unique opportunity for young neuroscientists to meet experts and other neuroscience graduate students from all over the world.  In the advanced school they will learn about the latest discoveries and have an opportunity to discuss their own research projects with faculty members.

The 2019 Advanced School will precede the ISN Biennial Meeting to be held in Montreal, Canada.  Students will meet in Montreal the afternoon of Wednesday, July 31 where they will take a bus to a lakeside resort in the Laurentians north of Montreal.  Students and faculty members will spend the next 3 days discussing science, with a departure for the main ISN meeting Sunday morning, August 4.

The topic of the School “Building and rebuilding the nervous system:  lessons from development and disease” reflects the broad nature of the interests of members of the International Society for Neurochemistry.  Furthermore, the topic emphasizes the idea that developmental mechanisms may provide key insights into neural repair.  We will approach this topic from different angles from neurochemistry, neurophysiology and molecular and cellular neurobiology.  Lectures will be given by leading experts in these fields.

Students will have the opportunity to present their own work.  All students will be expected to bring a poster to share, and to be prepared to give a short oral presentation if selected. Posters for the Advanced School and for the ISN main meeting may be identical.

We look forward to receiving your applications and spending time with you in Quebec in the summe
