Please note: due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the 2020 edition of the Bordeaux Summer Schools has been postponed until 2021.
Immune processes are major factors for the health of the central nervous system, as well as for risk or resilience to brain disorders. Exciting scientific insights indicate a highly sensitive and fine-tuned equilibrium of inflammation that modulates our cognitive and social abilities.
This interdisciplinary summer school is open to graduate students, doctoral and post-doctoral researchers from the fields of psychiatry, psychology, biology and medicine. The three-day course combines lectures and practical workshops on dimensional approaches in psychiatry, preclinical models and methods to measure immune markers, as well as educational workshops on how to write a paper or a grant application. Lectures on hot topics in immunopsychiatry will be given by internationally renowned scientists from the field.
The course is designed for graduate and doctoral students from various disciplines: biology, psychology, psychiatry, medicine, pharmacy, immunology, etc.
