5th EMBO Course


This June, the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology will host the 5th EMBO Practical Course: “Developmental Neurobiology From Worms to Mammals”.

Students on this EMBO Practical Course will be taught state-of-the-art approaches and techniques in modern developmental neuroscience, covering different stages of neural development ranging from neural induction to circuit formation and plasticity. They will acquire in-depth knowledge of experimental approaches in six different model species (C. elegans, chick, Drosophila, mouse, Xenopus and zebrafish) and in vitro. They will have an opportunity to closely interact with international leaders in the field, helping them become the next generation of successful researchers in developmental neuroscience.

Each day there will be 2 or 3 hands-on practical sessions, allowing students to acquire strong practical skills whilst working in small groups, followed by a lecture seminar at the end of the day, held by international leaders in the field. Students will have to bring a research poster, which will be exhibited and presented throughout the 2 weeks. At the end of the course, the best posters will be awarded with a prize.

Organizer: Clemens Kiecker. Co-Organizers: Robert Hindges, Corinne Houart, Laura Andreae and Oscar Marin 18th June 2017 to 1st July 2017
