It will also emphasize hands-on training and take place in state-of-the-art facilities in Bordeaux and Lisbon.IBRO Secretary-General, Sten Grillner, Chair of the CAJAL Programme Steering Board, explains, “European neuroscientists have long felt a need for a pan-European training centre … I believe that this programme will contribute to creating a vibrant neuroscience community in Europe and the world.”
During its first year in 2015, the Cajal courses will run from two to four weeks and be chaired by expert, highly respected mentors and leaders in the field of neuroscience. There will be a total of four courses offered.
