Elevator Pitch

Elevator Pitch

During February, several researchers and students from the institute, IBB and ICTA-UAB will participate in the Elevator Pitch course, organized by the Observatori de Difusió de la Ciència, at UAB.  

The aim of the course is to make researchers and students improve their communicative habilities, being able to talk about their research to the general public.

At the end of the course there will be a contest in which they will show their progression. Big Van Ciencia will develop the course, thank to la FECYT:

 

 

 

XI Symposium in Neurobiology of the Societat Catalana de Biologia

XI Symposium in Neurobiology of the Societat Catalana de Biologia

Last 12th and 13th of November was held the XI Symposium in Neurobiology of the Societat Catalana de Biologia. The congress, co-organized by Dr. Carles Saura, was focussed this year on novel experiments and techniques in neurobiology research.

Profesor Andrea Volterra (from the Lausanne University) and Lluís Montoliu (Centro Nacional de Biotecnología, Madrid), presented the latest techniques to study the calcium in astrocytes, and in DNA edition, respectively.

Near 20 students and researchers from the Institut attended the event, presenting their research in posters and oral communications.

The organization committee encourages the INc research groups that did not attend this year, to attend next edition, as it is a good platform to give visibility to the excellent research that we are doing at the institute.

Dr. Raül Andero was elected by the FENS (Federation of European Neurosciences Societies) Governing council, member of the FENS Program Committee for the Symposium that will be celebrated in Glasgow in 2020.

His main objective will be to have the most excellent neuroscientists presenting at the FENS Forum 2020, always keeping in mind the role of diversity, to continue equal empowerment for all.

In his opinion, the forum should continue embracing the explosion of new technologies applied to neuroscience, as tools to answer the important scientific questions to further understand the brain.
