AUDITORY NEUROSCIENCE SUMMER SCHOOL

Just one day for the Auditory Neuroscience Summer School. Become familiar with current research topics in Auditory Neuroscience. This event is organised by TARGEAR

The school aims to provide a forum to learn state-of-the-art procedures to study hearing disorders. Students will have the opportunity to learn from experts a series of techniques, including, but not limited to: electrophysiology recording, developing and adult inner ear sample preparation for histology and gene expression analysis. In addition, the course will teach the participants the main indications of surgical and non-surgical devices for the current treatment of hearing loss. This practical course is designed to provide the participants with general knowledge to carry experimental work in the inner ear of lab animals. Limited seats are available to ensure a more personalized experience.

The TARGEAR project is an Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) – Marie Curie Action constituted by experienced research groups in complementary fields ranging from the molecular to the clinical aspects of age-related hearing loss. The general objective is to develop a collaborative strategy between public research institutes and private companies, based in transfer of knowledge, to design and implement preclinical studies for presbyacusis.
