ACHUCARRO has designed novel concept of advanced training course (School), willing to contribute to strengthen the professional background and the careers of scientists working in the field of glial cells.

Gliologists already have training opportunities in their own institutions or labs, and a good number of different courses and conferences, so we wanted to bring something new and innovative, where the emphasis is centred in the student and his/her capacity of deploying new concepts, ideas, methodologies and techniques, towards new hypotheses, projects and ideas.

The 2018 edition of the Achucarro International Glia School will be held Atalaia Claret Residence, very close from the headquarters of Achucarro and the campus of the public University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in Leioa, so the attendees will have access to the facilities in Achucarro and the campus, for working and for leisure and free time activities. And Bilbao is just 12 km away from this location.
