This laboratory and lecture course is designed to provide neuroscientists at all levels with a conceptual and practical understanding of several of the most advanced techniques in molecular neuroscience.
The course curriculum is divided into three sections: an extensive and up-to-date set of laboratory exercises, daily lectures covering the theoretical and practical aspects of the various methods used in the laboratory, and a series of evening research seminars.
The informal and interactive evening lectures will be given by leading molecular neuroscientists and will serve to illustrate the ways in which the various experimental approaches have been used to advance specific areas of neurobiology.
The CSHL Meetings & Courses Program is strongly committed to diversity in the recruitment and selection of participants for all our courses. See our diversity policy here. We strongly encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds to apply for this course.
