Translational medicine - MS

Graduate programme in Neuroscience

This course will bring together clinical and basic aspects of neuroinflammation. The course is designed to give an introduction to both immunology and neurobiology sufficient that the interaction between them can be understood in a clinical and basic context There will be a mixture of lectures and group discussions. Students will be encouraged to recognize the translational potential for their projects. To this end, students will be asked to prepare a max 5 minute outline of their project and its perceived translational relevance for the discussion sessions, and will take away from these discussions a better understanding of this.
