CTNR Winter School 2023

Finding each other - Lund & Rostock

Rostock & Biohotel Gut Gremmelin, Germany, January 25-27, 2023.

The CTNR Winter School is a platform for getting to know each other and for networking. Senior and junior scientists from Lund and Rostock will come together to present themselves and their research as part of the newly established United Neuroscience Campus (UNC). The Winter School aims to help you find collaborators from the respective partner site for future joint activities, initiatives and exciting research projects. At the Winter School you will learn more about the UNC, its aims, ongoing activities and future plans.

If you are interested, you are invited to first deepen your neuroanatomical knowledge in a brain preparation course in Rostock, which precedes the Gremmelin meeting. At Gut Gremmelin, participants will have the opportunity to present the current state of the art, their methods, applications and technologies. The Winter School offers networking opportunities through oral and poster presentations, discussions and scientific networking activities. The two best posters will be awarded with 500 €.
