All eligible applicants will be invited to participate in the online components of the Program as LATP Associates. Fifteen trainees will also be selected as Fellows to participate in a three-week course at the División de Neurociencias at Instituto de Investigaciones Biológicas Clemente Estable (IIBCE) in Montevideo, from November 2–20, 2020. The course topic, “Molecules, Cells and Circuits: Understanding Nervous System Mechanisms”, will bring together top faculty from around the world to provide participants with high-quality lectures, lab exercises, and training on vital professional development topics. LATP Fellows also receive a travel stipend to attend Neuroscience 2021.
Applications close at 5:00p.m. EDT on Wednesday, May 13, 2020.
