Spinal Research

Summer School in Neurotrauma

Over one week 20 young Neuroscientists will meet and work with leading figures in the field to give an insight into spinal cord injury repair with the hope that it will encourage a greater number of postgraduate researchers to develop their careers in this area.

Research into spinal cord injury currently receives no government funding and so for young Neuroscientists, completing their time at University, other areas of Neuroscience seem more readily accessible and appealing. Unless a young Neuroscientist has been working in a lab where a lead researcher has received a grant to work on spinal cord injury there is little opportunity to learn about or experience the research in spinal cord injury and repair.


The school will give 20 young Neuroscientists the opportunity to meet and work with leading figures in the field as well as training them in the core curriculum of spinal cord injury repair. Open to young scientists from across the European Union, the schedule will be wide reaching, allowing students to learn the basic techniques of spinal cord injury repair and engage in top level discussions with leading experts working in neurology every day.
