Brain Homeostasis and Neurovascular Coupling
19 May – 8 June 2019, Bordeaux Neurocampus, France
The Neurovascular unit (NVU) is a physiological entity that consists of fine-tuned interactions between cerebral blood vessels, pericytes, astrocytes, immune cells and neurons in order to maintain brain homeostasis. The NVU contributes to brain vessel properties such as blood-brain barrier (BBB) and cerebral blood flow regulation. Several brain disorders are associated with NVU dysfunction. There have been several recent advances in knowledge and in the technologies available to study the NVU. This advanced course will allow students to gain basic knowledge and hands-on experience with various techniques, such as in vivo/ex vivo high-resolution imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, brain vascular pathology rodent models and in vitro BBB models.
Applications will open on 19th November 2018.
Fee : 3.500 € (includes tuition fee, accommodation and meals)
The CAJAL programme offers 4 stipends per course (waived registration fee, not including travel expenses). Please apply through the course online application form. In order to identify candidates in real need of a stipend, any grant applicant is encouraged to first request funds from their lab, institution or government.
Kindly note that if you benefited from a Cajal stipend in the past, you are no longer eligible to receive this kind of funding. However other types of funding (such as partial travel grants from sponsors) might be made available after the participants selection process, depending on the course.
If you are a member of the Japan Neuroscience Society (JNS), please check the application call for partial grants on the JNS website. Deadline 22 January 2019.
