The Fourth Annual Summer School in Brain Disorder Research
The Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics hosts the Fourth Summer School in Brain Disorder Research
The School is aimed at clinical trainees (FY1 - ST2) and non-clinical scientists (MSc, PhD, Post Doc) who are interested in moving into the field of Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics or those who want an introduction to cutting edge research in brain diseases.
A variety of paradigms will be introduced including epidemiology, neuroimaging, molecular biology and genetics.
Via lectures, interactive sessions and informal discussion participants will gain an appreciation of a range of exciting approaches to the study of brain disorders and the opportunities available to pursue a career in research.
Participation is limited to 30 attendees and places will be allocated competitively.
If you are successfully awarded a place there will be a fee of £150 to attend the school. This fee is heavily subsidised by generous funding from the MRC and WORD.
The fee will cover:
- Full course attendance
- 3 nights B&B accomodation at a central Cardiff hotel
- Taxi transportation between the hotel and the Henry Wellcome Building
- Daily refreshments
- Buffet Lunch on the Tuesday and Wednesday
- An evening buffet / networking event
A discounted fee will be available for those who live locally and do not require accomodation.
We are keen that no-one is prevented from attending the school because of lack of funding and so a small number of full bursaries will be available to cover the registration fee, accommodation and reasonable travel expenses to those awarded a place. Bursaries will be awarded competitively and according to need. Please contact us to discuss further if funding is a problem and please include a case for support on your application if you would like to be considered for a bursary.
Please contact CNGGSummerSchool@cf.ac.uk if you require information on local funding opportunities.
The deadline for applications has been extended to 5pm on Friday 27th April 2012 and successful candidates will be notified by the end of May.
To apply for the summer school please send a copy of your cv (maximum 2 pages) and a covering letter to CNGGSummerSchool@cf.ac.uk
