Neuroscience Seminar in Germany is a summer study abroad program for undergraduate students, which emphasizes the international nature of neuroscience research and the collaborative educational opportunities that are possible in today’s scientific community. Registration for the course will be through the College of Charleston. The course content will focus on current topics in neuroscience research while taking advantage of the historical lens Germany provides to examine the origins of our knowledge about nervous system function. We will be hosted by two German universities: Ludwig Maximilians Universität (LMU) in Munich and Charité Medical University in Berlin. Both universities are members of the German Graduate Schools of Neuroscience (GSN). The course topics have been selected based both on the research specialties of the faculty at these institutions and the unique historical perspective provided by the location.
This course will run from May 26 to June 23, 2012 and is open to students at any undergraduate institution. For more information see the course website. The course has an enrollment/application process with a deadline of February 24th. You can contact the course directors Dr. Mike Ruscio (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Chris Korey (email@example.com) for more information.
