brainThis year's U4 Ageing Brain Summer School will be hosted by Ghent University from 28 August till 2 September 2017.  

The programme is open to Master students and junior PhD students, who have a specific interest in neuroscience and want to be trained to face one of the biggest challenge of the century: ageing.

Within a 5-­day-course, experts in the field will give high-level lectures in individual morning sessions. The afternoon sessions will comprise a group assignment that needs to be presented by the end of the week.

And apart from interesting talks and hard work, students will have the opportunity to discover the beautiful and interesting city of Ghent.
