Testimonies

 

Project " Translational approaches of psychiatric and neurological disorders "

Hosting University: Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
Prof. Catharine Winstanley of The University of British Columbia

Summary of activities: workshop as an invited lecturer a course titled “Careers in Neuroscience” intended to reassure and inspire students who are often very apprehensive about committing to a scientific career. Additional open lecture on modeling decision making and impulsivity in rats, and how these findings have informed development of a human research program and collaborations with psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, and neurologists.

"I very much enjoyed interacting with the Neurasmus students. We had a very stimulating discussion regarding career paths in neuroscience, and the need for diversity, equity and inclusion within modern academia. After my formal lecture, we also had a candid discussion about the challenges of developing a truly translational neuroscience research program. Overall, I was very impressed with the students’ engagement with the subject matter, and passion for science."

Project "Gene and Cell therapy"

Hosting University: Universidade de Coimbra
Scholar: Prof. Edgardo Rodriguez from University of Iowa

Summary of activities: teaching as an invited lecturer a course titled "Gene and Cell therapy of CNS: from microRNAs to iPS cells and gene repair", individual meetings with course participants to discuss their future as scientists, participating in a laboratory meeting hosted by Dr. Luis Pereira de Almeida and establishing collaborative research efforts.

"Overall, my experience at the Universidade de Coimbra was very positive. The experience of teaching this international group of students enriched my academic experience and allowed me to better understand the challenges they face during their training years. These challenges are most definitely quite different than what U.S.A-based students face. Finally, the interchange of ideas and approaches to research, both with students and other invited lecturers, served to enhanced my own perspective on gene therapy research."

Project "Neurophotonics"

Hosting University: Université Laval
Scholars: Dr. Jens Baron, Dr. Friedrich Johannes Zander, Dr. Karin Richter from Charité-Universitäsmedizin Berlin

Summary of activities: attendance to the Frontiers in Neurophotonics Summer School, participation to hand on experiments in small groups and individual meetings with course participants and Laval research teams in order to establish collaborative research links to support the Neurasmus Erasmus Mundus program in the field of Neurophotonics.

"The lectures, given by recognized specialists in the field of life imaging the brain and related structures, were of high quality and great value. It was a great opportunity for us to better understand imaging and life imaging on a cutting edge, state of the art basis and to initiate further Scholar projects in the Neurasmus program with outstanding colleagues!"
