July 2016 - Spinal Research Summer School 2016
The third Summer School took place this year in Hattingen, near Düsseldorf in Germany.
About the Summer School
The school is for young clinicians and post-doctoral researchers in neuroscience and related fields to review the neurobiology of neurological injury. The course has a particular focus on spinal cord injury and encourages students to progress in this field.
Clinical and basic science lectures, as well as workshops from distinguished specialists in the field will discuss merits and limitations of existing models of injury used in research. The course will provide an overview of the key clinical issues in this field, and of promising translational research avenues.
During the School, students will have the opportunity to present their own scientific work in a poster format. The emphasis throughout the School will be on interaction and scientific exchange with the Faculty.
“This summer school was very enriching, motivating and inspiring. It was the perfect context to interact with high level researchers in the field and young students/postdocs from different labs all around the world.”
In 2012, Spinal Research and Wings for Life UK organised a week long summer school in London for PhD students, young clinicians and post-doctoral researchers in neuroscience and related fields to provide a week long training course to review the neurobiology of neurological injury, with a particular focus on spinal cord injury. The school was hosted for a second time in 2014, in Toledo, Spain and this year in Dusseldorf, Germany.
