Université de Bordeaux
 

Timetable & learning outcomes

Course content combines lectures and practical sessions on hot topics in immunopsychiatry, as well as educational workshops on cytokine measurement, maternal immune activation or meta-analysis. The program is delivered  and developed by researchers belonging to the ECNP immuno-neuropsychiatry network.

In addition to the lectures and practical sessions, students and speakers will share lunches and dinners in an environment encouraging exchange and reflection. To faciliate collaboration, a “speed dating” event with each course leader will be organized.

Tentative program

Please note: participants will be asked to introduce each plenary speaker and play the role of chairman during the round tables. Participants must also prepare a scientific poster prior to the course.
