Bridging Basic with Clinical Epileptogy

Applications are now open to the 2017 international advance epilepsy summer course on BRIDGING BASIC WITH CLINICAL EPILEPTOLOGY-6
July 17-28, 2017, San Servolo

Course directors: Giuliano Avanzini and Marco de Curtis

The main objective of the Advanced Course Bridging Basic with Clinical Epileptology is to provide the critical competence necessary to design, write and conduct an effective research project/activity in the field of epileptology. The Course is addressed to neuroscientists and neurologists with a documented background in epilepsy research. Final goal of the Course is the preparation of a research project on a subject decided and assigned by the Course Directors. Groups of 8-10 students are formed at the beginning of the Course. In the following days, each group will develop a research project under the supervision of tutors. The progress of the project will be evaluated daily during group discussions with tutors. Each research project will be collectively discussed and evaluated during the last day of the Course. Lectures on general and specific topics will be interspersed with interactive seminars, workshops, and breakout sessions where small groups of attendees and faculty will be involved in tutorials. Didactic material and dedicated equipment for consultation will be available for students under the supervision of the tutors.
The Course is supported by the Neurobiology Commission and the Commission on European Affairs of the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE)
