Aims and Scope of the School May  1 - 4, 2017:

The week-long advanced neuroscience school foresees an intensive day-to-day and face-to-face interactive program on research design and methodologies in neurogenetics, recent advances on genetics of neurological diseases and conditions of the nervous system as well as on translation and implementation strategies for clinical and public health benefits in the African context.


IBRO/ARC, 2017 school has a main theme of neurogenetics. We believe that the advent of novel genetic analysis techniques e.g. NGS, CRISPR Cas gene editing will revolutionize the way we look to genetic basis of neurological disorders, gene therapies and animal modeling of diseases. Through inviting different international speakers who are experts in the field and supporting the travel and accommodation of students from all Africa, we plan to offer a unique opportunity for Exchange of knowledge and ideas between scientists and students. This will help in transfering knowledge and créating a cultural and scientific dialogue in an emerging field of neuroscience.
