The education and training of students and young researchers (initial and continuing education) is at the heart of NeurATRIS activities, either through the activities of its members or through the financial support of NeurATRIS to encourage their participation in high level scientific events. This concerns for example students in medicine, pharmacy, engineering schools, or in Master, PhD or postdoctoral training, hosted by NeurATRIS partners.
NeurATRIS members are involved in several university courses such as Masters, Graduate Schools, University Diplomas (DU), Medical and Paramedical Schools and Innovative Training Networks (ITN). The aim of these courses is to highlight the translational aspects and advantages of developing strategies ranging from in vitro models to clinical trials in neurodegenerative, neurological and/or neurodevelopmental diseases.
Training of NeurATRIS platform users:
Throughout the year, the NeurATRIS platforms organise specialised training courses for their new users. The latter can also be trained during technical workshops regularly organised by NeurATRIS member institutes, such as during the annual ICM platform day (https://institutducerveau-icm.org/en/actualite/technical-platform-day-at-the-icm/).
Support for participation in scientific events:
To facilitate the access of students and young researchers to high-level training, NeurATRIS covers their mission expenses in order to help them attend national and international congresses, workshops and summer schools relevant to the field. All young scientists within the NeurATRIS perimeter can apply for financial support, usually covering transport, accommodation and/or registration fees, via a dedicated form.
«Next Generation Challenges»:
On the occasion of its annual Translational Neuroscience Day, NeurATRIS highlights the skills of young researchers through a dedicated session: "Next Generation Challenge" (see page "Scientific events"). Master students, PhD students and post-doctoral fellows have the opportunity to present their work through a poster or a short oral communication, the best of which is awarded a NeurATRIS prize by a jury of experts in the field.
