Frontiers in Neurophotonics
An International Summer School on Advanced Optical Imaging and Photoactivation Techniques
The next edition of the Frontiers in Neurophotonics Summer School will take place June 11-21, 2017 at the Neurophotonics Centre.
Trainees attending the school are selected through a competition. Applications will be submitted to a jury and evaluated on the basis of the quality of the candidate’s academic and research background, as well as their motivation and letters of recommendation.
Applications are now being accepted
Go to the How to Apply page to learn more about the application process.
Frontiers in Neurophotonics is an opportunity to meet fellow researchers and students from around the world, discuss and discover the latest advances in live cell optical imaging techniques put in perspective by experimental challenges in the field of neuroscience. The school will combine tutorials given by experts in photonics and neuroscience and hands-on experiments involving advanced optical approaches to measure, manipulate and follow molecular events in living neuronal cells.
