IBRO-APRC Associate School of Neurosciences, Nanjing University

The International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) Asia-Pacific Regional Committee (APRC) is supporting the organization of an Associate School at Nanjing University, Nanjing, China.
The purpose of the IBRO-APRC Associate School is to provide a platform such that young neuroscientists (e.g. junior faculties, postdoctoral fellows and PhD students in neuroscience) from the Asia-Pacific Region can meet and exchange research ideas and findings with world-class neuroscientists. These prominent neuroscientists from abroad will also offer keynote lectures on advanced neuroscience. Such an exchange program on state-of-the-art topics and research strategies are essential for the academic development and maturation of the young neuroscientists. Another aim of the Associate School is to identify bright students who are suitable to attend the main Neuroscience Schools in different parts of the Asia-Pacific Region or even the RIKEN Summer School (Wako, Japan) within the next couple of years. Funding from IBRO will enable about 30 students to attend this five-day school.
The Associate School at the School of Life Sciences, Nanjing University will consist of five days of intensive lectures and tutorials on selected areas of neuroscience by lecturers from the USA, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and Korea. The medium of instruction will be in English.
