Introduction

2020 Summer School of Primate Neurobiology will be held in the International Center for Primate Brain Research (ICPBR) affiliated with Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology (CEBSIT), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shanghai, and jointly sponsored by IBRO and ICPBR. The goal of this school is to provide introductory lectures to international young investigators (mainly graduate students and post-doctoral fellows) on recent advances in the science and technology related to non-human primate research, with relevance to the understanding of human brain functions and disorders. A portion of the students will be exposed to laboratory experience by participating in the one-month internship associated with CEBSIT labs.

The School will consist of two parts: Lectures and Tutorials (7 days, July 20 to July 26, 2020) and Internship (one months, July 27 to August 31, 2020). The lectures (mornings) will be given by distinguished researchers in the field of primate neurobiology, with full participation of students in the tutorials (afternoons) provided by faculty and teaching assistants. For lectures and tutorials, 30 students will be selected from the applicants. A small number of students (8-10 students) will also be accepted for internships in ION/ICPBR laboratories for participation in laboratory projects and exercises for a duration of one months.

There is no tuition for the Summer School. The Summer School will cover the accepted applicants’ travel costs (economy class), accommodations and meals in Shanghai. The other costs, such as visa fee, insurance, local transportation fee, et ac, will be taken care of by the applicants. We strongly suggest the applicants to purchase insurances in advance.

The school applicants should not be the CEBSIT members. We encourage CEBSIT members to attend the lectures and volunteer to be the TA.

Please use the online system to finish your application, the application directly to CEBSIT lab heads will be ignored.
