IBRO logoThe primary goal of this IBRO-MENA Neuroscience School is to provide students with a general understanding of the basic principles of neurogenetics, and to encourage them to pursue careers in research and academia. Through lectures, practical workshops, and discussion sessions, we hope to expose students to the fundamentals of neurogenetics, from the molecular to clinical levels.
The course will cover the following themes:
  • Neurogenetics
  • Neurodevelopmental Disorders

The course structure
 will be comprised of:
  • Lectures by expert instructors
  • Experimental work
  • Interactive discussion sessions
  • Student presentations
  • Professional development sessions
  • Networking sessions
The schedule can be downloaded here (pdf). 

We hope this course will ignite students’ curiosity about the brain as an intricate physical organ, and how its underlying components can work together in synchrony to give rise to complex behaviour and cognition.
