Achucarro International GLIA SCHOOL | frontier research in glial cell biology

Achucarro Basque Center for Neuroscience (ACHUCARRO), a unique research centre established in Bilbao, organises a new concept of advanced training course for researchers already working or interested in the vibrant field of Glial cells.

The approach of this School is to foster close interactions between the speakers (mentors) and the students, and inspire the elaboration of new collaborations/projects during a three-day course consisting of Practical demonstrations of state-of-the-art techniques, and Brainstorming sessions (in groups) for designing an innovative research project. We will organise the School every second year, and the first edition was in 2018. The next edition is expected to be held in the summer of 2020.

The main goal of this our school is to combine cutting edge science and leisure activities in a relaxed environment (so ideas can naturally blossom) by fostering close interaction, mentoring, and networking with leading researchers in the field of glial biology.
