The methods of neuroscience have advanced at spectacular speed. Young researchers are now required to learn and use a diverse range of bleeding-edge techniques. In order to benefit from these advances in technology, new approaches to training are desperately needed.
This event will explore how current approaches could be improved to tackle present and future challenges in neuroscience training.
After a brief presentation about the current hands-on training opportunities in neuroscience, participants will hear from a panel representing prominent international neuroscience courses: What makes these courses popular/useful? What are the plans for the future?
The event will end with a Q&A session where panel members will discuss key issues and respond to questions from the audience.
12:00-12:10 pm Introduction on current hands-on training opportunities in neuroscience. by Dr Elena Dreosti.
12:10-12:30 pm Panelists presentation of current neuroscience courses and challenges
12:30-12:45 pm Q&A discussion on how to improve training
